Subject Re: [users@httpd] Re: Proxying From Directory To App On Port
Date Tue, 25 Aug 2015 21:13:47 GMT
Some clarification needed here.

Is the app and the jetty backend on the same server? If so, are you using 
the reverse proxy option because jetty typically would listen on port 80 and 
is on a different server from the app but you have a need for app and jetty 
on the same server so the jetty needed an alternate port?
