We have about 5-6 different RTs setup on the same virtuals, some of them use
their own database, some of them share the same database

Subject: [rt-users] Two discrete instances of RT / same server

Dear List,

In the interest of brevity does anybody have experience with
standing up two apache <VirtualHost> each having an instance
of RT running on the same server ?  We want to have a test-config
instance, as well as our existing running instance.

Seems like the safest thing would be two separate mysql backends,
one running on a different port.  Is it possible instead to
run both out of the same mysql, but rename 'rt3' to something else ?
if we had a completely separate {RT} home dir and separate etc,
separate Site_Config.pm, all referred by a second apache ..
would things still break inside perl / mason somehow with shared
caches ?

Let me know if this would be feasable.  If it is and nobody wrote a howto
yet I'd be willing to document steps taken and flush it out into a howto
that would be wiki-usable.

Kind regards,
