In my apache configuration, I am using a scripting language (tcl through apache rivet) which implements a "heavy" application, something that takes some minutes to start when apache starts a new process.

Is there a way to "separate" these "heavy" apache processes from the rest of the apache?

I.e. when the url is "/my_heavy_service" redirect the request to the apache which has the "heavy" application loaded, and the rest of the requests be handled by an apache with does not even has mod_rivet loaded?

Like starting an apache on a different port (i.e. 8123), which loads my application, and starting a "normal" apache on port 80, which serves all requests except some, which are directed to the server in port 8123.

In general I think it can be done (i.e.:,
but is a way to do this in fedora 19, and keep all this "systemctl * httpd" stuff?

Has anyone attempted this?

I start httpd.exe from a PHP script, using this command string on Win7:

 start /b  /d ...httpd.exe -f myhttpd.conf

This appears to work OK. However, when it comes to stopping it I have an error message. I'm trying initially from the console prompt:

 httpd.exe -k stop -f pathtomyhttpd.conf

and the message is:

 (OS 5)Access is denied. : failed to open the Apache2.2 Service

What is the right way to do this?

I am a bit confused about the mod_rewrite documentation. It shows this rule to block hotlinking:

RewriteCond "%{HTTP_REFERER}" "!^$"
RewriteCond "%{HTTP_REFERER}" "!" [NC]
RewriteRule ".(gif|jpg|png)$" "-" [F,NC]

however, I'd think a better rule would be:

RewriteCond "%{HTTP_REFERER}" "^$" [OR]
RewriteCond "%{HTTP_REFERER}" "!(www.)?*$" [OR,NC]
RewriteRule ".(gif|jpg|png)$" "-" [F,NC]

if I want to block anyone manually typing in a link (no referer) + hotlinking (probably has a referer). Do i need the [OR] on the 1st
RewriteCond and not the 2nd one? It seems to work with OR on both conditions.

I'm trying to set DocumentRoot and the following directory directive relative to ServerRoot:

DocumentRoot "../web"

DocumentRoot is working, but the Directory directive is not. It won't match. If I change the directory directive to an absolute path it will work. Any idea how I can get this to work?
