Hi @chintanpandya,

I’ll recommend you to check the following article here;

I’ve marked step 5 - step-5-setting-up-virtual-hosts-recommended. Just follow that and it will help you to set a standard configuration file.

If you need to add a reverse proxy to Apache where it will redirect to another port, you need to add the following to your Virtual Block in your Apache config:

    ProxyRequests Off
    ProxyPreserveHost On
    ProxyVia Full

    <Proxy *>
        Require all granted

    ProxyPass /
    ProxyPassReverse /

Notice the ProxyPass / You’ll need to change the port with whatever your ruby on rails app is using.
