Port forwarding

I have a VPS with a single IP which is already running apache on port 80. I am also running WEBrick on a different port, 8080 for instance. the Apache on port 80 already serves, now I want to serve using WEBrick. WEBrick is running on port 8080, so setting up an A record requires me to append a :8080 to the end of the subdomain, which is undesirable. I have tried setting up an A record to the IP, and then setting up an SRV record to the subdomain to the A record with the port in it, apparently it doesn't work that way. I guess I should be able to do this using iptables then? I am using jekyll btw, if that helps. Not entirely sure if jekyll uses WEBrick. I cannot get any more IPs on this VPS. and does show the jekyll page, because apache virtual hosting doesn't work on ports apache isn't running on( obviously).

iptables does not work with HTTP hostnames, I guess you need Apache proxy:

I used Virtual Hosts and mod_proxy and it worked. Apparently I was wrong.
