These tags all seem to refer to the same things, and people are using all of them interchangeably. Personally, I'd have picked the one that nobody seems to have gone for but I guess I'm out of touch with today's urban sysadmin. I don't have any other preference, but whichever one the mods choose, I'll commit to writing a tag wiki for it.

As an aside, if you stare at the tag search page for 'virtual', the word starts lose all meaning eventually...

  • Man you're busy this early in the morning ;) I'll take look at all the tags Commented Jul 19, 2011 at 21:52
  • Insomnia's a terrible thing, and I can't go outside because it's persisting down raining.

  • Tell me about it. I start work at 7.30 and it took me 10 mins longer to get here just because of the rain. Commented Jul 19, 2011 at 21:53
  • P.S. I believe the correct tag is virtualhost because that's the actual name of the Apache directive. Commented Jul 19, 2011 at 21:54
  • @Mark: If you took the train to work, it wasn't my fault; I'm off today. <grin>

  • @Womble - nope, I drive. Good old lack of public transport to the north west. Anyway unless you do the Carlingford line... Hey are you one of those smart-arses who does announcements like "Today we will be cruising at 3.5 feet" and "Attention all passengers: You will find the ride more comfortable if you don't all try to squeeze through the first doors on the train all at once" Commented Jul 19, 2011 at 21:59
  • I don't drive the carlingford line much any more. It's the guard that does the announcements, so I don't have anything to do with that at all. Being a guard is a very boring job, I'm not surprised they make weird announcements now and then to relieve the boredom.

  • Well, if you did the carlingford line 18 months ago you might have given me a trip to work. Well to Clyde at least. Must be cushy line to do. Drive 5 stations, have a smoke, have another smoke, walk to the other end of the train, rinse, repeat. Commented Jul 19, 2011 at 22:03

    That walking 60 metres every half hour sucks. It's a tough job driving trains.

Ok. Merged:


I have not done because those questions actually seem to relate to VPS's and not apache directives.

Also, I see what you mean about the word Virtual losing all meaning ;)
