yes. Aside from ColdFusion and the new RoR apps that I’m creating, we’re a
100% microsoft shop. Is it possible to run both IIS and Apache on the same

with the normal IIS operation, I think I could get that done.
Yeah, I’ve done it so I could run Subversion through Apache, and still
run IIS apps. It means that you have to run your IIS apps on another
port, and proxy through apache.
The downside is that you have to maintain two server configurations
for your IIS apps.
BTW, I looked at the dotNet reverse proxy, but it doesn’t seem to
handle relative URLs properly. Otherwise, it might not be a bad choice
for an MS only shop. If you can get it to work it will save you from
having to maintain two web server configurations.
As for the reverse proxy, that would only hit 1 mongrel process right?
You’ll want to have at least two mongrel processes, maybe more
depending on the amount of traffic that your app will receive.
