Subject Re: secure reverse proxy to my tomcat server HELP NEEDED
Date Mon, 03 Mar 2014 23:25:14 GMT
Hi Chris -
Sorry for the "HELP NEEDED".

What actually happens is that, just for, I get served the pages
that are 
at the apache root, *not* what is being served by tomcat at port 8443.

I do get the tomcat pages if I explicitly add the port, i.e.
So, the reverse proxy seems to be broken for https only.

The reverse proxy works fine for http, i.e. gets the tomcat pages
