Do you guys know if it is possible, or if there are any tricks to running two different apaches at the same time?

I have a client that runs KnowledgeTree and they have what is called a "stack version" of apache that works with their software. We can't seem to get the software to run properly on the shared version of apache that we are running (on version 2.0 or 1.3.4). But it seems to work when the customer runs his version of apache.

I guess I would like to know if this would be a problem with him running his own version at the same time as the master apache runs.

Would this cause any problems that you could see?

cPanel doesn't support it - and would produce some really interesting results I think on service checks that the "real" apache is running properly?

Anyway - you could install a second apache on your server - but ensure that it's bound to port 8080 or some other port than the default 80. Otherwise, one of the apaches would bind itself to that port - and the other apache would simply fail to run.

I hope this customer is paying a lot for a custom apache to be installed - sounds like it's going to be more trouble than it's worth imho, running along side the cPanel apache.

You might want to triple check with this user to be sure he understands what he is doing. I kinda doubt there are TWO apaches running. The term "stack" or "stack version" usually means the LAMP web server application stack Linux, apache with MySQL, and the PHP/Perl/Python programming languages. You are already running a "stack" of these programs, but he might not fully understand it.
