Does adding a virtual host *require* a service restart?
I'm pondering how to build an application where by new sites are spawned off of the parent domain for example:
"http:www.localhost" will now include
"http:anothersite.localhost" and maybe
Using litespeed I can imagine scripting this out, but I'm concerned it would require a service restart to activate the new virtual hosts and associate them with a listener. Is this true? If so I'm concerned how this would impact current connections to users as new VHs are added. Realistically it won't be often but I'm wondering still.
Can anyone suggest for better method to achive the same result? Using virtual hosts is not a requirement, just my first idea of how to achieve the goal.
I have full control of the web and local dns servers as well such that name resolution canl be updated as needed.
