I apologize if this question has been raised before; I did perform a search (and it returned 12 pages, with no relevant results in the first four).
I am wondering about the logic behind preventing two websites from having the same domain name -- when the IP addresses on which to listen are different
I'm sure someone is thinking, "Why would you ever want to do that?"
I want to do it because I am migrating a website from one IP address to another IP address -- on the same server/ISPConfig installation.
Ideally, I would create identical websites -- one on each IP address -- so that once I update the DNS record (hosted externally), it doesn't matter which IP address the site-visitor hits when he visits the domain in question. The user experience should be the same for each IP address.
Is there a technical reason for which Apache cannot accommodate this setup?
Wouldn't it be perfectly valid to do something like this in the Apache configuration?
If I try that locally, Apache does not throw warnings/errors, and pages continue to be served from localhost without issue.
Thanks for any insights.
