Thank you for your post.
I'm not really sure what you are trying to accomplish. Can you be a little more specific? Why are you editing the host header?
I wanted to know if its possible to have 2 seperate websites that connect to 2 seperate databases- on one server running windows 2003. Does the website have to be in the home directory?-it seems that is the only way I can get the site to connect to the database.
