Using Apple's mod_rendezvous Apache module
Authored by: MtnBiker on Feb 18, '03 12:58:31PM

What does this mean: "register individual user's sites with Rendezvous"?

Isn't Rendezvous for local networks?

Using Apple's mod_rendezvous Apache module

They mean the "Sites" directory of various users. In this case, http://computer.local./~username
for every username in your computer gets registered automatically in 10.2.4.

That's because of the directive
RegisterUserSite all-users

You can change that to
RegisterUserSite username
to regiser only a particuler user's /Users/username/Sites/ directory with other computers via Rendezvous.

To see this in action (assuming you have a machine with 10.2.4 on your Rendezvous network and it is running Sharing->Web on), just open Safari and add the Rendezvous menu in preferences to your bookmarks bar. Click on it twice, the second time will show the sites "registered".

It's a pitty I can Registere the default site and user sites and user sites as resources, but the only way to register virtual hosts is to put them either in a /Users/username/Sites or in the path of the default site (/Library/Webserver/Documents) *sigh*
