Hi there @amammustofa,

Yes, one way would be to stop Apache and install Nginx. Then you could follow the steps here on how to use Nginx as a reverse proxy with Docker:

Alternatively, if you prefer using Apache, you could also use it as a reverse proxy. To do so you could follow the steps here:

Let me know how it goes! Regards, Bobby
