Another week, another 'explain reverse proxying to Tapas again'
thread. Can you not go through your email and re-read one of the dozen
of explanations you have had in the last month on how this works?

Personally, I think I've explained it as well as I can, but if someone
else fancies explaining it to you again, they would probably like to
see your actual configuration and a better explanation of what didn't
work better than 'somehow didnt work'. In other words something like

I have an application running on
I have a reverse proxy configured to proxy to this fooapp instance,
and here is the config file.
When I try to access the file '/fooapp/media/base.css' through the
proxy, I get a 404 not found.
Here are the log entries generated in the proxy's access_log for this
single request
Here are the log entries generated in the proxy's error_log for this
single request
Here are the log entries generated by the applications access log.

Show what actually happened in your scenario, because the information
you have given so far is useless.
