I've made a django site for a magazine, and it's found in mag.org/django-site. the old site is still at mag.org/httpdocs (hosted by mediatemple).
I would like it so that a hit to www.mag.org turns up the django site (as is currently the case, configured so in the conf file) while a hit to archive.mag.org serves the old site from httpdocs, that is, it's served by apache and not mod_python.
Is this possible to do through mod-rewrite, or mod-alias?
hosted by mediatemple dv. httpd.conf is rewritten by plesk; httpd.conf access is limited to a single vhost.conf for each domain/subdomain.
a simple [DocumentRoot /var/www/vhosts/mag.org/httpdocs] in the [/mag.org/subdomains/archive/conf/vhost.conf] was all I needed.
now mag.org points to the django site being served by mod-python, while archive.mag.org points to the httpdocs folder, served by apache.
(I initially posted this at stack-overflow, but I think it's more suited for serverfault.)
