No need for the second Apache.  It's just like putting a security
gate in front of your house.  So you have 2 entries for visitors.
The next thing is to change the policy (httpd.conf) that for some
destinations in your house people must get through the gate.

If you don't need the security gate anymore for some reason, simply
take it away, modify the policy, and you get your original Apache
back.  Just like something never happened.
