Adding another IP address, but not binding Apache to it


Jan 12, 2005
Hi Guys

I have a box with 5 IPs assigned to it. I'm happy to use just one because I don't have any secure sites on it yet.

What I would like to do is set up something on port 80 of one of the IPs. I've added the IP to the pool using WHM and reserved it so no sites get added to it. The problem is Apache is still binding to it.

Is it possible to get Apache to leave it alone in a way that isn't going to break either Cpanel or Apache?

I'm using CentOS 3.6 and WHM 10.1.0 cPanel 10.2.0-R82.

I've read about using various different network scripts but I'm not really sure how any of it works and if that would interact badly with Cpanel. I'm not sure about playing around with the Apache config files in case Cpanel changes them...

I'd really appreciate any help you can offer

Many thanks in advance
