Forum OpenACS Development: Re: Multiple DNS and subsites

Posted by Iuri Sampaio on
Although it's too risky and resource consuming, another option would be to start one AOLSERVER instance to every DNS. Then a different config file to every instance pointed to the same homedir and database.

Would that be even an option?

Best wishes

The solution seems a task for a proxy server but not entirely. I already set up in the Nginx, server settings, to the DNS to redirect to

But, It seems the solution is one step further, in the application level. It requires something similar to example:

The user access, OACS core notices the DNS is within hostnode's table, that the triple (, 9589839, /eventeasy/)

OACS serves the entire subsite to the user as if it is /

In the worst scenario it would impact url's structure, and that means a core change.

Is there any other possibility?
