At work, I'll be migrating our server from a WAMP box to a LAMP box and with my knowledge of Apache and wildcard domains, we're hoping to use client.ourtestserver.com instead of our current test.ourtestserver.com/client/project_id
Of course, management wants the project_id in the URL for accounting, billing and organizational purposes, so they want to use project_id.client.ourtestserver.com or client.ourtestserver.com/project_id.
Problem is, the developers and project managers like the short name to develop with (client.ourtestserver.com), so there's a conflict.
Is there a way for Apache to automatically list a sub-domain's sub-sub-domains, such as client.ourtestserver.com listing (through a simple directory listing or of the like) sub-sub domains such as 1234.client.ourtestserver.com, 1235.client.ourtestserver.com, 3452.client.ourtestserver.com ??
That way we can point a client to client.ourtestserver.com (which is easier to say over the phone) and have them click on their project_id.
Or am I going about this the wrong way?
