But what if both project red and green want to make their website
available to anonymous, not only to authenticated users? If you have
private projects which do require user login, your solution may be
sound, but for public projects, it definitelly is no solution.

Or would you suggest to submit username/password for a default user
within the apache rewriterule? (if that's possible at all)

Would it work to add a VirtualHostMonster for every single project and
use that one instead of a global one in the rootdirectory of the
instance? I know that the docs for VirtualHostMonster say that you only
need one, but does it have any disadvantages to use more (for each
project an own) if it is a solution to my problem at all?

thanks for your fast reply again :-)
