How do I use meteorup and apache 2 in the same server ?

So I have meteor app already up and running. Now im trying to set apache in the same server.

apache2: Could not reliably determine the server’s fully qualified domain name, using Set the ‘ServerName’ directive globally to suppress this message (98)Address already in use: AH00072: make_sock: could not bind to address [::]:80 (98)Address already in use: AH00072: make_sock: could not bind to address no listening sockets available, shutting down

Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State PID/Program name tcp 0 0* LISTEN 873/sshd
tcp 0 0* LISTEN 11369/docker-proxy tcp 0 0* LISTEN 13396/mysqld
tcp6 0 0 :::80 :::* LISTEN 11825/docker-proxy tcp6 0 0 :::22 :::* LISTEN 873/sshd

This is my plunt, docker-proxy is running in port 80 so, apache couldnt start, what could be the preferable solution ? Should I change the port of apache server or there are better ways.

Hey @jyotichhetri01 -

It’s hard to say if this will help with your specific Docker/Meteor setup, but a common solution to running Meteor and Apache on the same droplet is to set up Apache as a reverse proxy.

Basically apache handles all incoming requests coming in to port 80, and forwards certain ones along to Meteor, which is listening on a different port.
