I've set up a CNAME to redirect to another domain but as we all know we cannot specify ports in the DNS editor.

I've read that its easy enough to configure the Apache web server with a reverse proxy to direct content from when someone requests

Does anyone have any experience in doing this? I would like to know how to do it on my VPS because I have many uses for getting this done.

Thanks for your time and help.

EDIT: This appears to be the solution, but I am a bit unsure on how to implement these settings:
