www.example.com is on
server01 with IP address
abc.example.com is on
server02 with IP address
I actually do not want the subdomain
abc. Ideally I want it at
www.example.com/abc. I want to have a more cohesive website for usability and aesthetics. For non-technical people, having the content in a sub-directory feels that you are still on the same site compared to going to a sub-domain.
My problem is that the code for the subdomain site (Site2) is on
server02 with a different IP. I cannot use just 1 server for the 2 sites: Site1 is using Apache, MySql, and PHP for PHP websites and static websites. Site 2 is a webapp that uses nginx, ruby and postgresql. Maintenance wise, IMHO, it is easiest to have site02 on a separate server. But as I said, it would be great if it can be visited by the end-user in a sub-directory of the main domain.
Is there a a way for me to achieve this?
