Forum OpenACS Development: Re: Adding www to host node mapped URLs automatically?

Maybe I do not understand your problem Malte, but why not just use a DNS alias (CNAME) record for your specific issue?

It has nothing to do with DNS, what happens is that a HTTP request sends a Host header. This is mapped to a subsite, or some subdirectory of the main site. Obviously if DNS isn't setup correctly for the subdomains, the request will never arrive at the correct OpenACS instance. The overall effect is that one OpenACS instance can serve different websites.
