Install Nginx As Reverse Proxy Alongside Apache2

I'm looking to install Nginx as a reverse proxy on my Linode. I'm looking to have this run alongside Apache2. Can this be done?

I found a few links that may be able to assist you with this option. While I'm not familiar with this, it worth giving this a review and try.

If you haven't done so already, I highly recommend backing up your server before giving this a try. We do have a Backup Service that you can subscribe to and the cost of the service depends on the size of your server's plan. Once this is enabled, take a manual snapshot job of your server then proceed to install and configure Nginx and Apache for your server.
