    We need to setup a proxy server on our plesk ubuntu server running PHP and Apache. The proxy server must proxy web service calls from our application to a secure server using ssl and a digital certificate. The secure server is running Apache and the proxy server needs to authenticate using the digital certificate. On the Web services side the authentication between our application and the plesk server is via username and password. The proxy server then passes through the web service methods to the application.

    From what I can gather mod_proxy is included in the plesk Apache default installation. I just need to work out

    1. how do I load the module
    2. where do I put the digital certificate, do I need to load the ssl module?
    3. can someone confirm the consideration for mod_proxy is via the vhosts.conf

    Has anybody has any pointers or done something similar?
