I have a domain, and I would like to reverse-proxy a web app in Users should access that app by using Is it possible? I would like to use Apache or even better varnish (without hitting Apache) to do the redirect.

Thank you

I would use Apache unless there you have a high traffic site. This can be done using mod_proxy with ProxyPass and ProxyPassReverse.

It will end up being something like on the server:

ProxyRequests On
ProxyVia On
ProxyPass /subfolder
ProxyPassReverse /subfolder
