You probably will need a Zope product called SiteAccess.

With "SiteAccess" alone, virtual hosting would have been
a matter of about 1/2 an hour.

With Apache (ProxyPass) and SiteAccess, it was a matter of about
1 day. This should now be a matter of parts of an hour, too,
because a contributor wrote a HowTo, how to patch Apache
to let it propagate HOST information.

Sometimes, images must be forced with a SHIFT-reload to
be shown correctly. I do not know of other problems.

Yes. Install MySQLDA. Then it is as easy to connect to it
as it is to connect to any other relational database:
add a connection object to a folder.

But you can access it via HTTP, FTP, Webdav, XML-RPC and
soon via XPath.

Zope's logfiles are compatible with (e.g.) logs written by Apache

Where do you come from?
What special features do you use/need?
What techniques do you use now? How many script do you have?
