Jason :

That’s a great idea… I don’t think I’d get it past the management
right now, but when I take over then it’s all good :slight_smile:

We’re actually doing exactly what you suggest on a different project
here… What I’m trying to do right now is just this:

IIS : www.uwec.edu/biology

Apache : www2.uwec.edu/biology/labdata/

Then use a reverse-proxy like ISAPI_REWRITE to send requests from
www.uwec.edu/biology/labdata to www2.uwec.edu/biology.labdata

And hopefully, no-one is the wiser.

I do plan to document this on my site and will make the reference
available via the wiki once I’ve got it finalized. (I’m about half-done
now.)

Can someone who knows more about this let me know if this is going to
work for at least the short-term? I already know that IIS is not the
best web server to use and that’s why I’ve given up trying to use Rails
on IIS. The point is that if I can prove this works, I can probably
take this a step further and use Linux+Lighttpd.
