Nginx as a Reverse Proxy for Apache
August 02, 2017 12:29PM
Hey guys,

In fact,I have two Wordpress instances that are started in two different apache web-servers, as well as each instance has a different IP address.

Image description(show attachement)

I installed Nginx in the first machine (Machine 1).Nginx will play the role of a reverse proxy,he is started on port 80 and apache on port 8080 , the logic that I wanted to apply it this the following :

1.If the user accesses in the first machine ( to ), Nginx will receive the request and it will redirect the request to apache which is booting on port 8080 in the first machine (Already implemented).
2.If the user enters a url for example ( , he accesses to wordpress instance which is started in the machine 2 , but the domain name must not be changed , ti must remain on the same domain name (
If someone can help me or give me an idea on how I can implement this logic I will be very grateful

What is the sense to use nginx as frontend for apache?
You can use it directly with php-fpm.
