Plack and multiple domains

szabgab has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I am using Starman to host a web site. I would like to setup a couple of other domains on the same server and tell Starman to handle them. How can I do that? I think Starman cannot handle it alone so I thought I'd need a Plack::Middleware. I checked, but I could not find any that would do that. Have I missed it or do I misunderstand how this should work?

Update

I also asked on the IRC channel of Plack and they directed me to Plack::Builder which is just awesome.

    I think its just a matter of using

    --listen localhost --listen localpost --listen localfoobar
    and then having some Plack::App::URLMap dispatch apps based on Host: header ( PSGI SERVER_NAME or HTTP_HOST var)
    $urlmap->map( "http://localhost/" => $app1); $urlmap->map( "http://localpost/" => $app2); $urlmap->map( "http://localfoobar/" => $app3);

    I'm not sure you need the multiple --listen options if all the hostnames bind to the same IP

    If you don't want to change any application code, you could have separate instances of Starman listening at different ports, and then have a user-facing Apache instance that runs a reverse proxy for each subdomain.

    I use a similar setup for a host that started off with only Apache, and now forwards some domains to a Mojolicious application, and it works fine.

      Or you could have a user-facing ngix/lighthttpd/perlbal instance that runs a reverse proxy for each subdomain :) Plack::Middleware::ReverseProxy

      example reverse proxy config for apache/apache2/ngix/lighthttpd http://www.omakase.org/perl/starmanreverseproxyab.html
