    I have 2 web servers on the lan and one of them has no internet.
    I would like to be able to access to the lan web server from the internet so i must to redirect a web folder ( /var/www/mail/) from the one which has internet to the other in the lan and which has the webmail server.

    btw, I use apache2 on a Debian etch

    Is that possible?

    Thx in advance

    you can try an NFS share/mount , setup a virtual site and see how it goes.

    It's a good idea but i'm not using ispconfig and no balancer ;)
    They are 2 diferent servers offering diferent services.

    Here is my idea:
    http://mypublicdomain/ -> Goes to the main server
    http://mypublicdomain/mail -> Must go to a server in the LAN.

    That's why im asking to create a virtual server but i have no clue. Is there any good tutorial or a howto?

    Use proxypass like this:
    ProxyPass /mail/
    ProxyPassReserve /mail/
    Just change with your second server ip. You also can put this into a VirtualHost.

    Hi all,

    I already did it. This is my mail VirtualHost file in the sites-enabled folder:

    <VirtualHost *>

    DocumentRoot "/var/www/mail"
    ServerAdmin [email protected]
    DirectoryIndex index.html index.php

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteRule ^/$ /mail [L,R]

    ProxyRequests On
    ProxyPreserveHost On
    ProxyVia full

    <Proxy *>
    Order deny,allow
    Allow from all

    ProxyPass /mail/
    ProxyPassReverse /mail/


    Also I created the mail folder under /var/www but I suppose I must create the index.html or php file to redirect all the calls from that directory to the mail server. Does anybody tell me what to type in that file?

    Im sorry but i'm newbie in these cases.

    Thx in advance
