When using ProxyPass in apache, it won’t obey any aliases. Apachectl configtest won’t complain, so you could end up messing around with this for a while (like I did) . For example:
[...] Alias /foo /absolute/path/to/foo ProxyPass / localhost:8080 [...]
In the example above the alias directive wont have anything to ‘say’. In my access.log I noticed this when clients trying to access stuff from the alias’ed dir got a 404 .
You can fix this easily by:
Alias /foo /absolute/path/to/foo ProxyPass /foo ! ProxyPass / localhost:8080
