Hello,

Since cPanel does not yet fully support apache2. I was forced to install apache2 on a separate port (8080) in order to run my subversion server.

Now my question is - is it possible to point a domain (dev.oschat.net) to that port without having to type :8080 on the end of it? Could I manually add an A record or something?

Any help would be great.

Thanks,
Jeff

Go on, have a guess
No, you can't do it in DNS. The only way to do what you want is to use a didicated IP address and run apache2 on port 80 on that IP and then change apache1 to listen on all other IP's explicitly.

Would it be like this?

Apache1:
Listen 75.126.7.18:80

Apache2:
Listen 75.126.8.228:80

By the way, I use your CSF firewall and I must say it's amazing :D Way better than APF.
