Installing apache server 2.4.4 along side xitami pro

apache and xitami



9:49 pm on May 1, 2013 (gmt 0)

I inherited maintaining a server running xipro v2.4c3. It does not work well with php or most anything else I try. I want to switch to apache server, but this is a production environment and I don't want to mess things up until the switch. It is also doing ssl. It is on a Windows XP machine with all updates. I went here: [anindya.com...] and downloaded the x86 with openssl installer. What I was hoping to do was to install apache server and have it listen on another port so that I can configure everything and get it all working before switching to it. I think I would just need to change the listen directive at that point.

My questions are:
Is the above link a good version of the installer?
Is this methodology a solid approach?
Are there any gotcha's that I need to worry about?

Thanks in advance for any help.

welcome to WebmasterWorld, troyd1!

i can't address your installer question.

will both virtual hosts be on the same IP address?
i usually prefer to use another virtual host (such as a subdomain) vs another port for development purposes, but your solution may work as well or better, especially if you don't have a wildcard subdomain SSL certificate.

i would recommend using something like HTTP Basic Authentication to prevent unauthorized requests from getting access to that server's content before you are ready to go live.

Thanks for the reply. I have already tried installing the server and got it working, but cannot get the ssl working. I am going to post that on another thread.
