comment Can an Apache proxy send one request to multiple servers?
Hahaha, writing it, and getting it to work at scale, I will agree, are two entirely different tasks. Best of luck. :-)

comment Can an Apache proxy send one request to multiple servers?
Yeah, gor ignores the responses and always sends a 200 with a body OK. It also has an issue forwarding POST bodies, but that's probably a bug. Sounds like the merging of responses is a pretty rare use case, and will probably need custom code. Would be easy enough to build mind you...

comment How can node.js bind to loopback IPs that don't exist?
Gotcha. This is only true for 127/8 addresses, or can I also bind to arbitrary addresses locally and use them? Production safe?

Makes me feel better, I tried to find the answer with a multitude of searches before posting. :-)

Use `sudo crontab -e` instead of `echo password | sudo`

comment Assigning Multiple IP Addresses to localhost OS X 10.6
Using echo PASSWORD is a terrible idea. A crude alternative would be to put something in root's cron like sudo crontab -e and @reboot ifconfig lo0 alias 127.0.0.2. There is certainly a more elegant solution, but anything that involves your password in plain text is unacceptable.

comment stunnel client uses improper SNI when talking to Apache
Did you find a solution? We're in the same situation, using stunnel to forward from Varnish to an SSL enabled backend. We're hitting the same SNI issue because we have multiple Host header values.

comment Difference between SSLCertificateFile and SSLCertificateChainFile?
When I put (in this order) server, intermediate, ca into a single file, and point to it with both SSLCertificateFile and SSLCertificateChainFile apache won't start and I get [error] Init: Multiple RSA server certificates not allowed in error.log. Can you be more explicit about the format of this combined file that works for both? I tried adding / removing the private key, no dice.
