Multiple instances on one machine?

So, I was wondering if anyone’s had any luck running multiple instances of
RT on the same machine? If anyone’s tried this, any words of
advice/warning/wisdom? Also, if anyone knows why this won’t work, why
didn’t it? (Or if it’s designed not to, let me know…)

The problem is with mod_perl … it stores the instances internally and
doesn’t care if you come from a different URL or port.

I have two installed, one under mod_perl and one under FastCGI. Works
without any problems at all. Means I can hack at one while the other one
is used by our support team to tell me what I need to hack :slight_smile:

Cheers!

HI,

If you are going to do this… which I have in my test/qa environment you
have to run fastcgi, mod_perl cannot be loaded twice. Otherwise is works
fine.

I have not failed. I have just I don’t know the secret to success,
found 10,000 ways that don’t work. but the secret to failure is
trying to please everybody.

I’ve had 2 instances of rt 3.3.12 running OK under modperl - I used two
separate instances of apache and two separate rt directory trees. The
apaches must listen on different ports, of course.

Sorry I should have been more specific. If you want both within the same
apache instance mod-perl will not work. Fastcgi will.
