I know this should be very basic and simple in theory, but I need to complete this task, I'm new to this and for some reason I can't find a suitable example that works for me.

I am running apache 2.2 in windows 8. I need to access a website, let's call it, through my proxy. The reason is that I need to show it in an iframe and also programmatically log in on it, for which I need to use javascript. This is prevented by cross domain ajax security constraints. By proxying the site I could do that.

I have installed Apache http server. Uncommented the following line

LoadModule proxy_module modules/

in file "httpd.conf" and overwritten file conf\extra\httpd-vhosts.conf with the following:

NameVirtualHost *:80

<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerAdmin webmaster@dummy-host.localhost
    DocumentRoot "C:/Program Files (x86)/Apache Software Foundation/Apache2.2/docs/dummy-host.localhost"
    ProxyRequests off
    ProxyPass /feature
    ProxyPassReverse /feature
    ProxyPassReverseCookieDomain localhost
    ErrorLog "logs/dummy-host.localhost-error.log"
    CustomLog "logs/dummy-host.localhost-access.log" common
    <Directory "C:/Program Files (x86)/Apache Software Foundation/Apache2.2/docs/dummy-host.localhost">
        AllowOverride all
        Order Deny,Allow
        Deny from all
        Allow from

I restarted the apache service, now I go to :


and get

Not Found

The requested URL /feature was not found on this server.

What could be wrong with this set up? Is there something else I need to configure?

Thank you
