I'm setting up 2 ubuntu servers in different locations, one blog, one forum. I was going to use a subdomain for the forum but decided instead to make it a subfolder, example.com/forum.
Is there a way to get Apache on server 1 to redirect requests to example.com/forum to server 2. Whilst keeping the users url example.com/forum and not forum.example.com. Do I need mod-rewrite rules or a reverse proxy?
Would prefer traffic to both parts of the website to be shared between the servers reducing the load on server 1
