Description Robin Johnson archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2003-08-09 14:30:16 UTC
This is a tracking bug for the new vhost-config tool.
Comment 1 Robin Johnson archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2003-08-09 15:33:34 UTC

for some of the initial discussion.
Comment 2 Robin Johnson archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2003-08-10 17:36:49 UTC
Working on it in CVS @ gentoo-src/vhost-config
Comment 3 Carl A. Dunham 2004-03-28 09:23:12 UTC
Is there a project home for this, or has it died?
Comment 4 David Grant 2004-04-26 15:26:03 UTC
I'd also be interested in knowing whether or not GLEP 11 is still alive or not.
Comment 5 Daniel Black (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-04-26 15:49:55 UTC
accepted standard.
Comment 6 Stuart Herbert (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-04-27 13:22:32 UTC
The work is alive and well.  

There's code in Portage.  There are ebuilds in Portage that use the new code.  We've made announcements about code releases in GWN, on gentoo-dev, and in Linux Weekly News.  We've also announced a new Gentoo mailing list for discussing all things web-related (

I'm not sure where else we could have made noise about this ;-)

Best regards,,

Good stuff.  I guess I'll just have to join gentoo-dev!  
Comment 8 Mike Nerone 2004-07-09 15:05:15 UTC
Was vhost-config renamed to webapp-config, or are these two different things? If it was renamed, that's where the confusion is. I'm not clear on it, either.
Comment 9 Stuart Herbert (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-07-10 01:18:41 UTC

vhost-config is meant to be a separate tool from webapp-config.  It's meant to create the skeleton structure that you mentioned in bug #56577, amongst other things.

At the moment, David Stanek has taken up the work on vhost-config.

Best regards,

Any news on this?

Or is there another way of configuring vhosts now?
Comment 11 Stuart Herbert (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-01-03 15:26:00 UTC
Okay, I've established the project to create the next generation of these tools.  webapp-config is well established in Gentoo now.

Until we release a working vhost-tools package, admins will have to continue to create & configure vhosts by hand.

Best regards,
