Subject Re: [users@httpd] Want to Deploy Web App Behind a Reverse Proxy

You do need to have a httpd instance running at all times; how else do you
think it will serve requests?

Lastly, your comment about the documentation is a bit odd - perhaps you
could offer constructive comments on specific sections instead, so that we
could work on improving it. A lot of folks dedicated a lot of time writing
it, and even more would benefit from improvements.
