Folks, Trying to proxy my domain to a Google Apps built website.

As you know, Google websites carry the following URL pattern:


How do I get http://meme.com to look as https://sites.google.com/site/sitename/

Is it possible, and what is the correct way to setup a domain name for this site? If if I have meme.com, why is this setup not working?:

<VirtualHost *:443>
   SSLProxyEngine on
   RewriteEngine on
   ProxyPass / https://sites.google.com/site/sitename/
   ProxyPassReverse / https://sites.google.com/site/sitename/

Turn off the SSLProxyCheckPeerCN, then try again to see what happens.

You need to aslo specify a certificate, keyname and CA certificate if needed like:

SSLCertificateFile /path/to/your_domain_name.crt
SSLCertificateKeyFile /path/to/your_private.key
SSLCertificateChainFile /path/to/DigiCertCA.crt

I should have added that ... Obviously the certs are in. –  CMag Sep 10 '12 at 19:30
Its possible that the *.google.com vs sites.google.com wildcard certificate is the reason why this is failing.... –  CMag Sep 10 '12 at 19:31
