I've got Apache2 and Tomcat 7 running and I'm using ProxyPass to direct certain VHosts that require Railo (CFML) through port 8080.

Things are working great, except for the fact that I can only access the root of the directory... subdomains give me a 404.

hosts: railo.testing.local


<VirtualHost *:80>
  ServerName "railo.testing.local"
  ProxyPass / http://railo.testing.local:8080/
  ProxyPassReverse / http://railo.testing.local:8080/


<Host name="railo.testing.local" appBase="/Users/[myusername]/Sites/railo.testing.local/"
    unpackWARs="true" autoDeploy="true"
    xmlValidation="false" xmlNamespaceAware="false">
        <Context path="" docBase="" debug="0"/>

From my browser, railo.testing.local works great! However, if I try and access a subdomain like railo.testing.local/sub, this is when I get that ugly 404

Take a look at Apache and Tomcat log, it will tell you the details. –  quanta Jul 29 '11 at 10:46
Does it work if you direct your web browser to railo.testing.local:8080/sub ? –  DoubleMalt Jul 29 '11 at 21:36
@DoubleMalt, no... I was thinking the same thing. –  dcolumbus Jul 30 '11 at 4:41
