Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Im trying to redirect http://domain.com/fw to my firewall, which is 192.168.x.x.

When using proxypass, i get this errors in my log, and a 404 in my client:

[error] [client x.x.x.x] File does not exist: /var/www/fw

This is my vhost file:

<VirtualHost *:80>
Servername domain.com
ProxyPreserveHost On
ProxyPass /fw http://192.168.x.x
ProxyPassReverse /fw http://192.168.x.x

Any ideas?

(Apache/2.2.22 (Debian))

apachectl -S

 wildcard NameVirtualHosts and _default_ servers:
*:80                   is a NameVirtualHost
         default server www.domain.com (/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/www:4)
         port 80 namevhost www.domain.com (/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/www:4)
         port 80 namevhost domain.com (/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/www:10)
         port 80 namevhost domain.com (/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/www:16)
         port 80 namevhost domain.com (/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/www:24)
         port 80 namevhost domain.com (/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/www:30)
Syntax OK

can you please add the output of apachectl -S? –  dawud Sep 7 '13 at 13:03

Seems like a silly question but is the module enabled? I don't believe it's enabled by default, nor installed for that matter.
