I installed both Nginx ( port 80 ) and Apache ( port 8080 ). But for some domains, i just want to use Apache ( port 8080). Of course, i can not change Apache to port 80, How make visitor always access http://mywebsite.com:8080 instead of http://mywebsite.com ?

You can just proxy ALL of the requests from nginx to apache, you can’t have multiple programs listening on the same port. <br> <br><pre>server { <br>server_name mywebsite.com; <br> <br>location / { <br> [… proxy_pass to apache …] <br>} <br></pre>
