Does anyone know if the following is possible (Note - My client wants a separate Apache server in front of each of there LIVE and TEST tomcat web servers, rather than use 1 with virtual hosts)

We have 1 windows server with 1 Apache installation which is serving the customers TEST tomcat web server on a separate windows server, we have now created a LIVE tomcat web server on that same server and we now need to create a second Apache installation on the Apache windows server.

Firstly is it possible for Apache to do this?

Apache Installation 1 -> Live Tomcat webserver (https://liveoptions.co.uk)
Apache Installation 2 -> Test Tomcat Webserver (https://testoptions.co.uk)

With just the 1 tomcat installation the Live tomcat URL just re-directed to the Test tomcat URL. When we created the 2nd Apache installation the same thing happened. Obviously the 2 Tomcat installations are running on separate ports, but both URL's are in the DNS mapped to the same IP address (The Apache Server).

Hopefully i've explained this ok, I know what I mean in my head but it's proving difficult to right it down

You have use just one apache. No need for a second one.

Just create two virtual hosts (vhosts) and put in each the reverse proxy config for your tomcat.

Yes, it is possible. You cannot run 2 Apaches on the same IP-address and same port, but as long as IP or port are different, you can run multiple Apaches.

I have got a production server (Windows 2008 R2), with 4 Apaches. Each one of them is listening to ports 80 and 443 on different IPv4 and different IPv6 addresses.

For Gregg: multiple instances do have some advantages. At a Apache version update I upgrade the server with the least important websites first, see if this causes no issues and update the instances on the other three IPv4+IPv6 adresses afterwards.

As a BTW: the server even has a fifth IPv4-address. I am using that one to run video servers. Windows Media Services on port 80 and Wowza on port 443.

Why me? I said nothing against doing this. When I had 5 WAN IPs I had 4 Apache's on 2 machines for no other reason than because I could Smile
