Howto setup apache2 request through 1 DMZ

Hello All,

I would like to send “sub-domain” traffice through 1 DMZ in my network.
I have 1 fixed IP and send my domain requests to my server through my network. ie www.example.com goes to my x.x.x.x fixed ip and ends up in my home server 192.168.1.43. Now I because that server (debian 10) is the only server in the DMZ i would like to forward server requests from there to an other server in my network ie 192.168.1.39. So in the dns I would still send traffic from the internet server2.example.com towards 192.168.1.43 but from there would like to send it on to 192.168.1.39

Does anyone have tips on the virtual hosts, or proxy settings in the apache2 configs?

Thanks!

Hi there,

As you are using Apache, I could suggest using mod_proxy to setup that kind of a reverse proxy for your websites.

You can follow the steps on how to do that here:

Hope that this helps!

In this DigitalOcean article, we are going to see set up Apache on Ubuntu 13 and use it as a reverse-proxy to welcome incoming connections and redirect them to application server(s) running on the same network. For this purpose, we are going to use and work with the mod_proxy extension and several other related Apache modules.
