I have 10 virtual servers (http) running on one director with 5 real

I want to customize a fallback server page for each of the 10 web
sites running on the virtual servers.
The way I imagine it can be done is setting lighttpd to respond to 10
different ips. One ip on the fallback server for every virtual server
that I have.
Is there a way to avoid that? I dont know, some way to use virtual
hosts and use just one IP for fallback server?
Just to get you right:
* You have 10 say "domains" running on 5 realservers.
* If one domain dies you like to bring up a "sorry-Page" that is
individual for every domain.
If these guesses are your intention then you will have to use 10
different IPs on the seperate fallback-Server mapped via the
http-daemon to your individual sorry-sites.
The loadbalancing daemon ldirectord, or keepalived, or ipvsmand knows
when the last real server of the domain is dead and
directs the inkoming IP packets now to the sorry-server IP. But it can
not change them to an other URL/domain since this information is
encapsulated in the Package HTTP-Protocol content.
If the many IPs itself are your problem (limited number) you may use
different Ports on the same IP. But the configuration
overhead will remain the same.
