I am new to apache I was hoping someone could describe to me in as much detail as possible how to setup a proxy while not affecting my webserver on port 80. When I currently try to access a webpage via the proxy the page trying to be returned is the index page of my website. Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

Thanks for some help

First, welcome to the forums.

What does the proxy have to do with the webserver?

The proxy is often run on a different port as the webserver, but more importantly...

The browser or application that you want to use the proxy also needs to be configured to make the requests via the proxy, otherwise, it will respond like a webserver.

The HTTPd will still act like a webserver even if it is also configured to handle proxy requests.
