I'm trying to get around the ERR_UNSAFE_PORT restriction in Chrome by making Apache reverse proxy other HTTP servers on the machine.

  1. I load mod_proxy with sudo e2enmod proxy
  2. I add ProxyPass /znc/ http://localhost:6667/ to my httpd.conf
  3. I restart Apache with sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

When I open up /znc/, I get 500 Internal Server Error. I added LogLevel debug, restarted apache, tried again, and got nothing suspicous:

So I'm stumped at this point. What to do?

I'm running Ubuntu Server 11.10. ZNC responds with a correct 200 OK and HTML when queried directly both from the local machine and the Internet.

One must also enable mod_proxy_http with sudo a2enmod proxy_http.
