I am attempting to get ProxyPass to work on my OpenSUSE 13.1 install.

I have tried:

a2enmod proxy
a2enmod proxy_http
a2enmod proxy_connect
systemctl restart apache2
systemctl reload apache2

(All combinations of statements to no avail).

I keep getting the same error over and over:

SERVER:/etc/apache2 # apache2ctl start -f /etc/apache2/httpd-proxy.conf
AH00526: Syntax error on line 4 of /etc/apache2/httpd-proxy.conf:
Invalid command 'ProxyPass', perhaps misspelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration

httpd-proxy.conf looks like:

<VirtualHost *:80>
    DocumentRoot /srv/www/subsite
    ServerName www.site.com/subsite
    ProxyPass /subsite/ http://localhost:81
    ProxyPassReverse /subsite/ http://localhost:81

Does anyone know how to get this ProxyPass statement working?


it looks like proxy_http_module isn't getting loaded, make sure you have following inside of your httpd.conf:

LoadModule proxy_http_module modules/mod_proxy_http.so

    or a2enmod proxy_http if that's how your Apache works – Mark Jun 14 '15 at 21:34
