I have sickbeard running at 127.0.0.1:8081/sickbeard

ProxyRequests Off

ProxyPass /sickbeard http://127.0.0.1:8081/sickbeard
ProxyPassReverse /sickbeard http://127.0.0.1:8081/sickbeard

in httpd.conf

And yet when I try and access http://example.com/sickbeard/ it gives me a 404, with this in the error log.

File does not exist: /Library/Server/Web/Data/Sites/Default/sickbeard

Which I think means it's ignoring the ProxyPass and ProxyPassReverse directives?

Anyone know why this may be? For what it's worth, this setup used to work under Lion.

I have the following modules loaded:

LoadModule proxy_module libexec/apache2/mod_proxy.so
LoadModule proxy_connect_module libexec/apache2/mod_proxy_connect.so
LoadModule proxy_ftp_module libexec/apache2/mod_proxy_ftp.so
LoadModule proxy_http_module libexec/apache2/mod_proxy_http.so
LoadModule proxy_scgi_module libexec/apache2/mod_proxy_scgi.so
LoadModule proxy_ajp_module libexec/apache2/mod_proxy_ajp.so
LoadModule proxy_balancer_module libexec/apache2/mod_proxy_balancer.so

Thanks for your time!

EDIT: I was asked for the entire conf file.

I believe it's essentially the default mountain lion apache httpd.conf.

EDIT2: The couchpotato reverse proxy does not work either, if that isn't clear after reading the httpd.conf.

#
# This is the main Apache HTTP server configuration file.  It contains the
# configuration directives that give the server its instructions.
# See <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2> for detailed information.
# In particular, see 
# <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/directives.html>
# for a discussion of each configuration directive.
#
# Do NOT simply read the instructions in here without understanding
# what they do.  They're here only as hints or reminders.  If you are unsure
# consult the online docs. You have been warned.  
#
# Configuration and logfile names: If the filenames you specify for many
# of the server's control files begin with "/" (or "drive:/" for Win32), the
# server will use that explicit path.  If the filenames do *not* begin
# with "/", the value of ServerRoot is prepended -- so "log/foo_log"
# with ServerRoot set to "/usr" will be interpreted by the
# server as "/usr/log/foo_log".

#
# ServerRoot: The top of the directory tree under which the server's
# configuration, error, and log files are kept.
#
# Do not add a slash at the end of the directory path.  If you point
# ServerRoot at a non-local disk, be sure to point the LockFile directive
# at a local disk.  If you wish to share the same ServerRoot for multiple
# httpd daemons, you will need to change at least LockFile and PidFile.
#
ServerRoot "/usr"

#
# Listen: Allows you to bind Apache to specific IP addresses and/or
# ports, instead of the default. See also the <VirtualHost>
# directive.
#
# Change this to Listen on specific IP addresses as shown below to 
# prevent Apache from glomming onto all bound IP addresses.
#
#Listen 12.34.56.78:80
Listen 80

Can you post the entire VirtualHost / Apache configuration? There might be rules before your ProxyPass that matches the request. –  pkhamre Oct 24 '12 at 11:00
    
I've edited in the httpd.conf, there are no virtualhosts being loaded. –  James H Oct 24 '12 at 11:15
    
Is there any .conf-files in /private/etc/apache2/other/ ? –  pkhamre Oct 24 '12 at 11:37
    
Just php5.conf, I've added it at the bottom in EDIT3. –  James H Oct 24 '12 at 11:41
    
Are you sure this is the configuration read by Apache? Your DocumentRoot is set to /Library/WebServer/Documents, but your log says the non-existing path is /Library/Server/Web/Data/Sites/Default/sickbeard. –  pkhamre Oct 24 '12 at 11:52

Mountain Lions apache config ist found under /Library/Server/Web/Config/apache2

Do not edit files under /etc or /private/etc and expect those changes to have any effect.

Be warned that ProxyPass and ProxyPassReverse are config entries, that might be overwritten by using Apple's own GUI utilities like Server app, as stated in site conf files! Read "man webapp.plist"!

EDIT: I've sat down and done an example for you. One thing to mention: the path in the plist file below is set to /sabnzbd, but in the browser you should enter http(s)://yourhost/sabnzbd/ - that's with a trailing slash. Also this example assumes the webapp is running on the same host on a special port (localhost:8080).

The text below is saved as /Library/Server/Web/Config/apache2/webapps/org.sabnzbd.plist. After saving it, you will be able to activate this web app by issuing "sudo webappctl start org.sabnzbd" in a terminal window. After starting the web app you'll will find ProxyPass and ProxyPassReverse entries in /Library/Server/Web/Config/apache2/sites/0000_any_*.conf

I'm not sure this is an answer to the question asked, honestly. –  HopelessN00b Oct 27 '12 at 9:14

What is the question then? I thought it is that someone is trying to use something like sickbeard through ProxyPass on a standard Mountain Lion server running Apple's apache configuration. If that's the case, the questioner is working on the wrong config files and will never get to where he wants to. Am I mistaken? –  Carsten Oct 27 '12 at 10:44
    
This is the answer, I had written one up earlier but there's a time limit for answering your own question. It was basically this without the plist bit, because I didn't know how :) –  James H Oct 27 '12 at 21:35

There are several things wrong with that config.

For starters, you need to actually allow access, even to a proxied vhost:

Order allow,deny
Allow from All

Next up, never, ever configure unslashed paths; also, presumably, sickbeard itself doesn't actually have a path named /sickbeard/:

ProxyPass /sickbeard/ http://127.0.0.1:8081/
ProxyPassReverse /sickbeard/ http://127.0.0.1:8081/

Both of these blocks MUST go inside the relevant VirtualHost definition.

And lastly, that PHP5 config is from the last decade; don't ever use AddType for handlers!

AddHandler php-script .php

Thanks for the advice on http.conf settings. I've enabled /sickbeard/ on sickbears by configuring its path setting. This is just Mountain Lion's default stuff, and it turns out it's not even using this file heh. –  James H Oct 27 '12 at 21:36
