12 I'm sorry for not answering to the question directly, but why use
13 apache2?
15 There are modern alternatives with very simple configuration and low
16 operational overhead like Caddy ( where reverse
17 proxy is just one command: caddy reverse-proxy --to
19 And something completely different like Traefik
20 ( which is
21 geared towards modern cloud native infrastructure with containers and
22 workload orchestrators like Nomad or Kubernetes.
23 Usually you don't configure Traefik with static config file, but with
24 metadata and annotations in K8S and Consul so it is dynamic and
25 reactive.
27 Or you can use nginx (which is already considered pretty old and clunky,
28 but it is much easier than apache still).
