I am seeking good practice advice for my web server running Proxmox.

My current setup has one VM running Ubuntu server with Apache forwarding all requests to the correct VM.

How does everyone else have their web servers set up?

i dont realy understand , so your proxmox server is also a a apache frontend server for the virtual servers running on it ?

Hi Coffe,

I decided to not touch the Proxmox installation and instead create a VM that runs Ubuntu/Apache and receives/reroutes all port 80 requests to other VMs under Proxmox.

The Proxmox installation is untouched since I didn't want to mess with it.

Is this an effective setup?

i would then. either have traffic direct to the servers. or not use apache , rather pound or varnish,
