Different applications, different host names, same CQ


Is it possible to configure CQ to serve different applications to different host names?

Sample: Two applications /content/myapp1 and /content/myapp2. For the same publish server IP address exists for two DNS records www.myweb1.com and www.myweb2.com. I want to tell CQ, if user will go to www.myapp1.com, then serve him /content/myapp1. And if any visitor enter www.myweb2.com serve /content/myapp2

Answer, Resolution

This scenario is possible with our Dispatcher Module and ideally running on Apache webserver which provides the mod_rewrite module needed to map domains to individual mandators, such as myweb1 and myweb2 in your case.

In CQ, you don't need to configure anything. First of all, you would configure 2 virtualhosts under apache, www.myweb1.com and www.myweb2.com.

Such a virtualhost entry would look like this:

<VirtualHost *:80>
DocumentRoot <path to docroot>
ServerName www.myweb1.com

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^/(.*)$ /content/myapp1/$1 [PT]

Please refer to our documentation site, docs.day.com, on how to configure the Dispatcher.
