    Hi
    I have a scenario.A domain www.mydomain.com
    then there are 4 private computers on which applications are hosted at port 80.
    So when some one from outside access the site it should look
    as www.mydomain.com/site1
    in apache2.conf where www.mydomain.com is hosted
    I added
    Code:
    ProxyPass /site1 http://192.168.0.2
    ProxyReversePass /site1 http://192.168.0.2
    
    is it correct ?
    I am able to see www.mydomain.com/site1
    but when some one logs in from internet to www.mydomain.com/site1
    it is redirecting to www.mydomain.com and not taking to page where a successful login will go
    in www.mydomain.com/site1
    what should I check or do ?

    Hi yes you are right.Even then now I am posting a solution since by now I have solved the problem.
    http://swik.net/MySQL/Planet MySQL/... behind a Reverse Proxy Server (Apache)/dcslr

    I am posting so that if some one else faces the same problem they may get a solution.Which is mentioned on the above link you can go there directly and read it.
    Code:
    When you install drupal on a server which is behind apache reverse proxy you need to tell that drupal installation about the presence of reverse proxy in your nework.
    That is the core of the problem.
    To achieve this you need to do do following
    in your drupal installation folder go to sites/default/settings.php
    and change the following
    
    $base_url="http://www.mydomain.com/;
    then 
    $cookie_domain = 'proxyserver.yourdomain.com';
    
    if above both are same then place them same values
    then
    uncomment 
    
    $conf = array(
    
    then
    uncomment 
    'reverse_proxy' => TRUE,
    
    then 
    'reverse_proxy_addresses' => array('192.168.0.1',),
    replace it by IP of your apache reverse proxy 
    
    and uncomment below it
    );
    
    Hopefully it should work.
    Keywords to search for this are if you are using drupal
    "drupal behind apache reverse proxy"

    You can get same problem if you do not use drupal the thing is any web server running behind a proxy needs to know how to handle requests which are forwarded by proxy.
    Some one if comes across same situation do reply here make a blog etc it will help others.
