Setting up Apache webserver as a reverse proxy

The apache webserver can be setup as a reverse proxy. A reverse proxy helps with inbound requests. When a client makes a request to your site, the request goes to the proxy server. The proxy server then sends the client's request through a specific passage in the firewall to the content server. The content server passes the result through the passage back to the proxy. The proxy sends the retrieved information to the client, as if the proxy were the actual content server
