you need to have 2 seperate external ip's, or have the listening port on one of the servers set to something different, like port 80. for one, and 81 for the other

you can not route traffic to 2 different machines on port 80,

i have heard of a script that did this, but it involved in forwarding you to a different machine, ,and did this by your os or browser type thing. nothing to rock solid

Alternatively, you could configure apache as a reverse proxy, so that requests to /folder1 get forwarded to your server, and requests to /folder2 get forwarded to your server.

See for details on configuring apache as a reverse proxy.


apache, proxy
