Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I did install GitLab on my Apache server using this script https://github.com/gitlabhq/gitlabhq/issues/3626 and I configured Apache to forward everything incoming on port 8080 to port 3000 like this:

<VirtualHost *80>

    ProxyPass /
    ProxyPassReverse /
    ProxyPreserveHost On

    DocumentRoot /var/www
    <Directory />
            Options FollowSymLinks
            Allow Override



However I would like to forward everything only for a particular website I host on this webserver. Can this be done?

I'm quite new into these things, if something is not clear, please ask.

Your config above does not match what you say that you are doing. But in answer to your question - yes, it can, you set up a VirtualHost for that one website and put the ProxyPass and other proxy directives in that virtualhost. There's a sample config for a similar issue in Running two PHP versions (5.3 & 5.2) at the same time .

I would advise you to spend some time reading the documentation for both virtual hosts and mod_proxy. It will more than pay off in fewer misunderstandings.
