Registering additional Rendezvous sites in Apache Network
You can set up additional Rendezvous web sites in Apache using the RegisterResource command in the Apache conf file. The format is:
  RegisterResource "Name" path [port]
"Name" is the Rendezvous name that shows up, path is the path to your site, relative to the machine name, and [port] is an optional port number to connect to. Note that the paths are relative to the default site name. I've not found a way to register virtual domains. In fact, Apache will generate an error and refuse to restart if you have RegisterResource inside a VirtualHost declaration.

Registering additional Rendezvous sites in Apache

You can still register Virtual Hosts using the Apple Rendezvous module, but you've just got to do it outside of the VirtualHost directives. Simple use the RegisterResource format and point it to the folder that is the root directory for the Virtual Host. I've got a few setup here at work and it works beautifully.

Now if only Rendezvous worked outside of the local domain....

P.S. Anyone know what happened to Eric Seidel's module? It was due for an update a few weeks back according to him, but I haven't seen anything in weeks.

I kind of assumed he'd given up since Apple came out w/ their module, which is a shame because Apple's won't run on other Unixes. I'd really looked forward to putting mod_rendezvous on our Solaris/Apache webservers at work for our intranet.

Registering additional Rendezvous sites in Apache

What is the "path" if the server has different IPs for each host? I have an Xserve with multiple IP addresses and some of them have a web site associated with them. I would like apple rendezvous module broadcast the names. Tried something like

RegisterResouce mywebsite /library/webserver/mywebsite

which the path for the site. This fails as the broadcast is for the server name associated with the main IP address

Wouldn't it be nice if Apple's ServerSettings app has an option for "enable rendezvous" for the site similar to WebDAV? Oh well, maybe in 10.2.5?

How did you get your virtual hosts to register?

I can't figure out how to get th epath to work. It' just giving out the host name (like :g3-apache.local), followed by the path. The Default site is at the same level as the virtual hosts though, so how do i get up out of the defauolt site, and address one of the other folders containing our virtual hosts?
