Subject [users@httpd] connecting two apache http servers
Date Sun, 01 Feb 2009 05:57:48 GMT
I want to connect two Apache HTTP servers in the same way that I would
connect Apache to Tomcat with mod_jk.

Right now I have two Apache servers, apache1 and apache2, accessed at
http://apache1 and http://apache2, correspondingly. Apache1 and Apache2 each
has a website, accessed by http://apache1/website1 and
http://apache2/website2, respectively. My problem is that I want to use
apache1 as a front end for both servers (since it is the only server that is
accessible to the outside world). How do I set up apache1 so that if users
access http://apache1/website2, the request will be sent to
http://apache2/website2, but still, the URL will be http://apache1/website2?

This set up is similar to the possibility with Apache + Tomcat via mod_jk.
In this situation, if Tomcat is running on port 8080 with AJP, then I can
access Tomcat with http://tomcat:8080/tomcat-site. I can set up Apache as a
frontend (to the outside world) so that when users type in
http://apache/tomcat-site, mod_jk will connect to Tomcat. Is there a similar
connector for Apache-to-Apache?
