What is the correct or best way to run multiple instances of Apache
on a Linux box, e.g. on port 80, 81, 82, etc? How does one set up the
httpd.conf files, etc? Is there any documentation out there that
specifies how to set this up?
Problem we are trying to solve:
We are building a system that uses load balancing, SSL and Tomcat.
We want to go through a load balancer that picks an Apache web server
instance using round-robin. Each web server instance has our SSL
installed and then proxies the request to a dedicated Tomcat instance
running on a separate machine. We envision setting this up with
pairs that process the request. The Apache servers are there to
SSL support and as a separate tier on a separate machine for security.
If we can get one Apache web set up with virtual hosts and each
host proxied to a specific Tomcat instance that would be great but can
you set up proxying on a Virtual Host basis, or is proxying
Any pointers/refernces appreciated!
