More on ProxyPass in Apache/Windows

Thursday, November 20, 2008 by Dave Winer.

I thought I had it yesterday, but there was a case I didn't test, and it didn't work, so there's still some more work to do. Permalink to this paragraph

What I want: Permalink to this paragraph

1. http://apache.twitterland.org/ should be served from the static Apache folder, which is in its virgin state with the It works! page. And it does work. Permalink to this paragraph

2. The npr sub-folder should be served by the OPML Editor, and it is. Permalink to this paragraph

3. http://test5.twitterland.org/ should also be served by the OPML Editor, but it is not. Instead it's serving the static Apache folder. Permalink to this paragraph

Here's a copy of my httpd.conf file. The VirtualHost stuff is at the end of the file. Permalink to this paragraph

This is a virgin Apache install, with the modifications made in yesterday's checklist, with one additional change, I've set the DocumentRoot to C:/www. Permalink to this paragraph

Update: With the addition of "NameVirtualHost" ==> it now works as needed. Permalink to this paragraph
