I just need to know if Apache servers work the same way as IIS.
On IIS you can have "Virtual Servers", where you have multiple IP address assigned to a network card.
A virtual server is like your default website and you can have other websites along side it.
You may have an IP address of 188.8.131.52 with 10 sites all assigned to that address. If you wee to ping all 10 individual hostnames they would each return the same IP. But if you were to type that hostname into a browser, it should only display the main default virtual servers website.
Is the configuration on Unix based webservers the same as this???
