Hope someone here can help me out.....
1) I need to configure several websites on a single box using Apache where each virtual domain may need have their own certificates and SSL connection. Can this be done somehow ?
I know I can have multiple "virtual domains" configured -- but only ONE will be able to use the SSL/port443 !
Is there any way/technique/best-practice to "multiplex" this SSL connection ;))
2) Can each virtual domain -- redirect JSP/servlet "application-server" requests to different application servers on the backend ? Maybe -- for example -- tomcat4:8080, jboss:8383, tomcat5:8888. I think the mod_jk configurations can be specified/unique for each virtual domain level. Should be OK I think.... but I've never dealt with these kind of more advanced Apache configurations and want to minimize/head-off any problems by doing some research first;
** I don't want to waste days trying to find the best version of Apache and mod_jk. Any suggestions ?
3) Do I need multiple machines, multiple lines, multiple instances of apache, MOD_PROXY, MOD_REWRITE ?? What I'm asking for is fairly standard I think -- but most documentation just skims the surface of these topics or skirt the issues focusing on very "vanilla" examples.
I've looked at: Q_20873192 (among others posts) and the url's suggested by this solution don't provide any clear/concise recommendations or best-practice and suggestions about how these type of "service provider" configurations/requirements are achieved in practice.
Hope to hear from someone soon.....
