Subject [users@httpd] ProxyPass does not work with hostnames only IP's. (mod_proxy Apache 1.3)
Date Mon, 16 Jan 2006 12:40:59 GMT

I'm using OpenBSD 3.8 default install with mod_proxy enabled. I use 
ProxyPass in virtual host directives with success. Example:

    ProxyPass /
    ProxyPassReverse /
    <Location />
       Order deny,allow
       Allow from all

...which works fine! The problem occurs when I want to use a hostname 
instead of an IP, e.g.:

ProxyPass /
ProxyPassReverse /

All I get is a "500 Proxy Error" page:
Proxy Error
The proxy server could not handle the request GET /.

Reason: Host not found

Every page I've read seems to indicate you can use hostnames in 
ProxyPass directive. The proxy can resolve "" and 
access the webpage at that address just fine. It simply wont proxy to 

Any help would be appreciated.
