Is redirectPort="8443" correct for your environment? This has nothing to
do with your HTTP 500 problems, but it's worth having a clean config.

Remove the previous 3 properties: they have no effect and clutter your

I don't believe you have to mention hub0 and hub1 directly, here, but it
doesn't hurt.

Check out the "worker.XXX.reference" property: it will save you some
typing and help maintain consistency across lb workers.

What version of mod_jk are you currently using? Actually... what
versions of /everything/ are you using?

I notice that you don't have any strategy for determining availability
of workers configured (ping_mode). You might want to look at those
options to determine what is appropriate for your environment.

I see that the sticky_session_force directive can result in a 500 error
being returned to a user who is trying to access a balanced worker in an
error state. I also see that you have sticky_session=false and the
sticky_session_force setting should be irrelevant. Is it possible that
your configuration file isn't actually being used? Try introducing a
syntax error into and seeing if mod_jk complains
about it on startup.

Can you show us what the status worker says when you find that 500
responses are being returned?
