RT and multiple perl/Mason applications

We have another Mason app on the same server (a small in-house one, not
another RT) and are getting connection dropouts.

I’ve been going over some old posts including
http://lists.fsck.com/pipermail/rt-users/2002-February/006966.html about
multiple RTs on one system from Bruce Campbell. Bruce - or anyone else -
in your fiddling with multiple Mason apps (and multiple RT instances, I’m
impressed!) have you even seen "connection was unexpectedly terminated"
type browser messages when there is no load whatever on any component of
the system?

Nope. The solution that I ended up doing was running them all as seperate
apache instances, and doing redirects to them. I have more issues with
Squid than with Apache in that setup.

Its possible that some internal variable is being overwritten in an
’undefined fashion’. Seperate out the applications, run proxypass on your
main apache, and you should be fine.

Might be even easier to run multiple instances of User Mode Linux for not
that much more overhead. You can still share filesystems and databases
just as easily.

Worth looking at.
