[Mono-list] Question about mod_mono with apache 1.3 and virtual hosts

Hi Sebastian,

Take a look at the man page of mod_mono:

  Takes a server alias name. This is to be used inside <Directory>
  or <Location>.  Default value: ’default’ if the directive is not

I haven't used this directive myself yet, but I think this is what you
are looking for. It makes the Alias known to Mono.
Good luck!

PS: Apache is a very patient server, it takes a lot to make him upset...
