    Default Does the server work for multiple web sites?

    Hi all,

    I'm still trying to work out how this work. If I get myself some VPS hosting, can I host multiple web sites on there and run them all from the same server software? Or do I need to get a licience for every website even if they're on the same host server?

    I know the technical answer, but am more confused as ever over the licensing aspect. Technically speaking, you just go through the steps in the "What's new in V10" under Help for running "multiple instances" of the web server, with a different configuration file for each instance. You have to isolate each instance otherwise session variables will be shared between each website.

    I don't think there is confusion about that subject.

    Would it hurt to put it on the web site?

    I and others are currently and successfully running multiple instances of the same licensed app server within the same VPS. Steve Wood's reference is a good starting point.

    I think you do what it let's you do. The idea that the WAS is a client specific product may be correct, in that I have a license to use it. I then offer my services and it's server capabilities to whoever I decide I want to use my applications or services on it, unlike the desktop where it resides on multiple devices in multiple sites and has multiple customers in possession of the physical product so they can use it, the WAS is in on one physical machine owned by one organisation, used how they see fit. Who supports the user, using one of your apps - you do, it has to work this way, any other way would simply kill-off any incentive to develop in the product in my view - and that would be a great shame.
