http://i.nfectio.us/litespeed2/litespeed2.html This assumes that you have a fixed ip doesn't it (or I have missed something important about VHosting)? Can't get that example to work. When I asked my first question in this thread you said that you wasn't sure what I was after, and that surprise me. Once again, how do I set up a local environment (with no accesss from the outside world) serving different Rails (and then PHP) apps? If Litespeed is so simple then why is this so difficult to explain? I would love to get this to run. Apache+Mongrel just works, but it's more complex. But your attitude towards this makes me hesitate about Litespeed Technologies and to actually buy your product.
