I am running a play framework java application in a linode instance. My virtual host entry looks as follows.

<VirtualHost *:80>
  ProxyPreserveHost On
 <Proxy *>
    Order Allow,Deny
    Allow From All
 ProxyPass /
 ProxyPassReverse /

Now I want to install a wordpress blog and access it from I have copied the wordpress folder to /var/www/blog. I am not able to access the URL as the request is going to the play framework. I would like to know how to resolve this.

Thanks in advance.

You can use the ProxyPass directive to exempt URLs from proxy processing like this:

ProxyPass /blog/ !

There are additional examples in the ProxyPass documentation. So something like:

ProxyPass /blog/ !
ProxyPass /
ProxyPassReverse /
