Subject Tricky reverse proxy problem
Date Fri, 15 Feb 2002 15:12:12 GMT

I've got a tricky problem : one of our websites is putting a very high
load on our webserver, so we want to move it to a seperate system. But
since we can't change the IP address, we have to use reverse proxying on
the main server. The site runs fine on the 2nd server, but I can't get
reverse proxying to work.
It should be as easy as :
<VirtualHost *>
proxypass /
proxypassreverse /

The servername of our main server is and we have :
        DocumentRoot /usr/local/apache/htdocs
        ServerPath /usr/local/apache/htdocs
        Options All

When I use the above configuration and surf to, I simply
end up at, instead of being redirected...

Any ideas ?

Kind greetings,

Wim Godden
