Use Nginx as reverse proxy for Apache while redirecting to a host other than localhost
When you check the “Use Nginx as a Reverse Proxy for Apache” check box in Settings > Hosts > Nginx, by default your Nginx php scripts will be redirected to localhost. You can direct your php scripts to a host other than localhost by making two small changes in your Nginx template file and MAMP PRO interface.
- Change the port number of the Apache host you want PHP scripts to be redirected to.
- In your Nginx template change the port number to reflect the port number change in your Apache host.
