I have put the following in my apache conf

    ProxyPass /manager http://localhost:8080/manager/
    ProxyPassReverse /manager http://localhost:8080/manager/

    ProxyPass /foo http://localhost:8080/
    ProxyPassReverse /foo http://localhost:8080/

However when I go to either of those links I get a 403 forbidden page.

However, if I simply go to my that works fine. To actually get to my manager I actually seem to have to go to however I have also tried

    ProxyPass /manager http://localhost:8080/manager/html
    ProxyPassReverse /manager http://localhost:8080/manager/html

and that hasn't worked eithter

Any thoughts? Thanks!

Looking at a reverse proxy we have defined here, it looks like you need to define:

  <Proxy *>
    Order deny,allow
    Allow from all

In the same Virtual Host container.
