Question Apache Proxy

Hi all,

I have a few web servers (separate physical boxes) that I would like to all function/appear as one website to the public.

I gather this would be a form of load balancing based on "content" rather than bandwidth and I understand Apache's reverse proxy feature is capable of meeting my needs. (or am I wrong?)

Basically I have 1 public IP and several internal web servers and would like the public IP translated into an internal IP which would be the address of the http redirector/Apache proxy server.The server would then redirect the connection to the appropriate internal box according to the http header.


http://site1.website.com --> public ip --> http proxy ---> host 1
http://site2.website.com --> public ip --> http proxy ---> host 2
http://site3.website.com --> public ip --> http proxy ---> host 3

Does anyone have any thoughts? Am I on the right track? If so can anyone assist with configuration? I can post what I have if this is the correct path to take.

Thanks for your help/input!
