Subject RE: [users@httpd] Apache listening on :8081
Date Fri, 03 Dec 2004 23:48:23 GMT
It sounds more like he maybe trying to get around a firewall that blocks
incoming port 80.  He doesn't want the end user to have to type in the port
number.  There is no "Real" way around that.  There's a lot of work arounds.
You could do web forward using ZoneEdit to forward www.yourdomain.com to
www2.yourdomain.com:8080.  That is the best way to do it if you are heartset
on hosting from this place where Apache can't listen on 80.  ZoneEdit is
free.  ProxyPass could work depending on the situation, as could a number of
other things.  He needs to explain more in detail why he can't run on port
80 and what else he has to work with.

Please post in plain text.

The proxy for Apache is called 'mod_proxy'. It's very well documented:

 http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/mod/mod_proxy.html

Basically, when mod_proxy is running you simply add a couple lines to the
config. Here's a really generic example:

<VirtualHost 1.2.3.4:80>
    ServerName www.yourdomain.com

    ProxyPass / http://www.yourdomain.com:8081/
    ProxyPassReverse / http://www.yourdomain.com:8081/ </VirtualHost>

It's not very difficult to set up. Of course, the server that you're using
as the proxy has to bind to :80.
