    Somebody can help me, how to configure reverse proxy for some domains with Apache install?

    I believe it does not matter whether you have Apache or some other web server running on your host. The reverse proxy must run on a separate extra host anyway. So you need a new host for the reverse proxy, seems usually nginx is run on the reverse proxy, I'm not sure why. I guess Apache would works also.
    Have you tried Internet Search Engines with:
    Code: apache reverse proxy

    There is some support for reverse proxying individual sites under the Redirect tab, I think you just choose 'proxy' as the Redirect Type and enter the destination in Redirect Path. In practice you will probably need additional apache config directives to be set, so just skip that and head straight to the site Options tab and enter everything you need in the apache directives. I'm sure you'll find examples using the above mentioned web search if needed.

    My question is wrong... :( I have installed ISPConfig 3 with Apache webserver. on my local network are some more Hosts for ex. gitlab, moodle, nextcloud ... On the ISPConfig Server i have hosted websites. I have just one public IP address, in this fall i must configure the Reverse proxy on my ISPConfig Server, but i dont know how can i configure. I think i must add a site for ex. and a proxy redirect to the host on my lan, but this config wount works.

    So you want to make your ISPConfig a reverse proxy server to another server in your network? Unless I am wrong that should be straight forward whether that ISPConfig server is apache2 or nginx.
