I would like to ask a question, regarding whether it is possible to have multiple separate Apache daemons running on the same machine. I do not refer to multiple apache processes. I know this is doable. I am talking about completely separate daemons. I am familiar with the concepts of VirtualHosts, and know how to run multiple websites on the same machine, but this is not what I need.
In detail, I am running a web application on a machine. An apache configuration files directs the web requests to the relevant location, or wsgi app. However, I need to setup a reverse proxy on the same machine. The configuration file of the reverse proxy will be constantly updated with more and more entries. For this reason, I would like to have a separate apache daemon to run the reverse proxy, so that any possible syntax error on the reverse proxy's Apache configuration file, will not affect/crash the web application. First of all, is this the way to go? Or is there another way to isolate the 2 applications(web app, reverse proxy), so that they don't affect each other? If yes, how is it possible?
Thanks in advance.
