Some muppet in my company has bunged up the config of an apache server. Basically what I need to do to fix this mess is to capture all traffic on port 8082 (Apache is configured to listen to this port) - then to redirect this traffic to /bugzilla. Is this possible, and if so how?

The box is only visible to internal users so quick dirty hack is just fine in this case.

Bunged up in what way, what does it do right now? – Shadi Almosri Jul 16 '09 at 23:59
Could you define muppet for those that don't understand the term please :) – Jon Jul 17 '09 at 0:05

Enable a HTTP Proxy for Apache, here the significative portion of httpd.conf:

LoadModule proxy_module modules/
LoadModule proxy_http_module modules/

ProxyRequests Off

<Proxy *>
    Order deny,allow
    Allow from all

<VirtualHost *:8082>
    ServerName  bugzilla.localhost

    ProxyRequests off
    ProxyPass /
