Chapter 9. Proxying > Basic Proxy Configuration

9.1. Basic Proxy Configuration

A request is deemed to be a proxy request if the hostname in the URL is not one served by the server. Requests can also be rewritten to be proxy requests using the RewriteRule directives with the [P] flag.

A proxy server can operate in two modes: as a forward proxy, where it accepts requests for remote URLs and fetches those resources on behalf of clients; or as a reverse proxy, where requests for URLs on the proxy server are mapped to remote URLs, retrieved, and returned to the clients as if they originated from the proxy server itself.
