    I just installed a fedora 6 based lamp system and added ISPConfig. I am connected through a router via a cable modem.

    I have a few questions:
    1) With this configuration, is it possible to create multiple sites via ISPConfig and see them from the outside world?
    2) When using the ISPConfig DNS Manager to add DNS Entries, which files on my linux machine actually get modified to enable the DNS resolution from other computers on my LAN? (its working fine, but I want to understand what is happening under the covers)

    I think I found what I'm looking for.
    I was missing the concept of virtual hosts and the fact that HTTP includes the domain name where apache looks to direct to different sites. Now things are starting to make sense for why you can use one IP address and support multiple sites.

    Thanks for the interest.
