titleGetting The Real Details

There are lots of useful things you can do with proxying and Apache. For example pushing URLs from HTTP to HTTPS, doing SSL offload, having different URLs for different customers, having the same server name for lots of your services hosted on different internal servers etc. To properly understand all the details refer to:
