[thelist] [long] PHP and Apache, each in a box. Possible?

If the goal is to distribute some of the load, I've seen a lot of people 
on the mod_perl list discussing a setup where you have a plain apache 
box that proxies requests and responses to one or more mod_perl (or in 
your case php) configured behind it. This is accomplished with the 
ProxyPass directives and allows for a optimization of the individual boxes.
That's about all I know about it, but maybe a direction for you? This 
way requests for static urls like images or plain html pages (or cached 
content) don't hit the php box.
