Proxy Traffic To Another Domain Using Htaccess

Posted on Tuesday 23rd July 2019

I am documenting this here as it was not apparent when researching this and took a while to find, hopefully this will make the answer more obvious for anyone needing it

If you want to server content from one domain on another domain, this can be achieved using mod_rewrite rules in Apache. This is done by using the [P] flag which enabled mod_rewrite to pass urls through to mod_proxy to another server.


The following example will pipe all traffic from www.example1.com/example/ to www.example2.com

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^/?exmaple/(.*)$ http://www.example2.com/$1 [P]
