comment: stickysession isn't doing anything unless you're running
another application or server which manages sessions (e.g. Tomcat).

what you're doing wrong: do you have SSL  running on those two servers,
and can you create a normal request directly to them and does that give
you a 500 too?

What is the cause of the 500 in the error_log of the proxied servers?
