i'm not going to use apache anymore. i think i'll go with nginx over lighttpd.

comments or suggestions?

I've used lighttpd for a while now and I've been impressed with it.

I would also like to know why you are switching from Apache.

because apache is working improperly. virtualhosts are serving https when i turn sslengine off and only tell them to listen on port 80.

Still sounds like a vhost issue. Mind showing us some configs?

oh, i get it now. the ttf ssl vhost is the default vhost for ssl/p443, so it is served.

i guess i just need to create a default ssl/p443 vhost that denies access if not using "ssl.thinktankforums.com".

yet another reason why i dislike name-based vhosts.
