Basically this is possible using our VirtualSiteRoot Product, which can be
found at


It does not actually install the config in the control panel but in the parent
directory. It also lets you setup different roots for management and public access.
So it's e.g. possible to use the management screens via https:// and the public
access is still working via http://.
Also included is some plugin mechanism e.g. for automatically inserting session
ids in the URL.
