comment How to serve multiple locations from a single root?
Great! So followup question: in my single server tempuri.org, I'm serving two different apps, that each have seperate root paths? How would I accomplish this, using that same notion of having a single root path?

comment Different routes for HTTPS vs HTTP traffic?
Thanks gregmac. The problem with the DNS based solution is that I'd prefer to have the customer install the script once, and not have to worry about knowing if they'll need SSL support or not. I think what I'll end up doing is going the first route, using nginx and varnish to serve both http and https content, and no longer use S3.

comment Different routes for HTTPS vs HTTP traffic?
Thanks @MarkHenderson We're sending messages back to our server by way of iFrame's and postMessage(), and while we can look at other ways do crossdomain, it would be a fairly significant rewrite (especially when attempting to address our browser support matrix). If I could route the traffic upfront, that should (in theory) be a cheaper alternative.

comment Different routes for HTTPS vs HTTP traffic?
I'd like http://mydomain.com to point to S3. I'd like https://mydomain.com to point to a machine that serves https. Cna I do this via DNS? If not, what is the best way (perf and cost wise) to do this.

comment What is a zombie process and how do I kill it?
No, kill -9 on THE PARENT will kill the parent, making init it's parent, which WILL reap the child's return code.

You should edit the title of your question then. It says "Two versions of Apache RUNNING on ubuntu.
