This may not be necessary, and we don't all have IPs to spare. (Well, I
do, at present, but that's another story.)

At the moment, amanooro and kassinakis don't appear to have DNS entries.
Therefore, the easiest way to proceed would be to get Otenet, the ISP in
charge of amanooro, and whoever sets up kassinakis, to set the IP for and to be the same as

There are arguments for having an IP for each site, but if all you're doing
is serving web pages, I personally wouldn't bother. I don't think it's
worth the extra hassle.

If you want to do things the hard way, ask me again. :)

Your httpd.conf should end up something like this:

Port 80

DocumentRoot /path/to/cottonon/site

DocumentRoot /path/to/kassinakis/site

DocumentRoot /path/to/amanooro/site

There's some basic security in place on that server; I'm not going to

anything you don't want anyone to get to, then filter everything that
is for your use only.

Any problems, feel free to email me - Greek is OK.

Hope this helps,
