seperate apache, port forwarding

I've got a colo'd box, and my own copy of Apache set up. (i wanted it to do stuff the admins didn't like, so we decided that the best way was to have my own instance of Apache running as my userid. they get their security, I get my configurations -everybody's happy.) anyway, mine is configured to listen on port 8080. The other "main" instance of Apache listens on port 80, as it should. What I'm trying to do is have their Apache redirect (or rewrite, even better) requests for my domains to port 8080, so my Apache will pick them up, and treat them accordingly. (both instances are using virtual hosts) This is really simple, I know, but it's just that one #^$*!! detail that I can't seem to find anywhere I've looked. (, and some others) Someone's got to know this one.

Another option is set up a virtual machine, possibly with a separate IP address.

found it

Thanks for your idea, but there's no way they'd change the kernel for me. I did finally figure out how. FYI, it's 2 lines in the httpd.conf file:

RewriteEngine on

RewriteRule ^/(.*)$1 [L,R]
