I've a running apache2 listening on port 80 serving some websites.

mod_proxy is configured for forward-proxying.

I'd like to have mod_proxy only listening to a separate port as 80

<Proxy *:55000>

Here I tried Port 55000. But this doesn't work :(

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Set ProxyRequests off globally, then 

<virtualhost *:55000>
ProxyRequests on

Then the normale websites are no longer served via port 80 :-\ – casper Jul 4 '11 at 18:02
Why would normal content care if you set ProxyRequests off and added a listen and a vhost? The site ate my <virtualhost *:55000> – covener Jul 4 '11 at 21:16
Your post above was not displayed correct. The "virtual host" line is not displayed in my browser (IE and FF tried). Only if I "edit" your post, all is shown.. Strange. – casper Oct 18 '11 at 12:37
sorry about that, wrapping it in the code tags fixed it – covener Oct 18 '11 at 13:26
