Configure Apache 2.4.2 as proxy for confluence


I am wondering what if the correct configuration for Apache 2.4. I virtualhost file looks ok per Atlassian's documentation. However, when I type URL it can see Apache's welcome page (subdomain is CNAMEd), but forwarding to confluence is not happening. 

Thanks for your help in advance.

Without your configs, no one can help you?

This is the config I am using:

<VirtualHost *:80>
        ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
        # Possible values include: debug, info, notice, warn, error, crit,
        # alert, emerg.
        LogLevel debug

        DocumentRoot /var/domains/wiki/htdocs
        <Directory />
                Options FollowSymLinks
                AllowOverride None
        <Directory /var/domains/wiki/htdocs>
                Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
                AllowOverride None
                Order allow,deny
                allow from all

    ProxyRequests Off
    ProxyPreserveHost On
    <Proxy *>
        Order deny,allow
        Allow from all
    ProxyPass /confluence
    ProxyPassReverse /confluence
    CustomLog /var/log/httpd/confluence.log combined
    ErrorLog /var/log/httpd/confluence_error.log
    <Location /confluence>
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all

What URL are you using to access Confluence?

if you enter the url what do you see in /var/log/httpd/confluence.log or /var/log/httpd/confluence_error.log ?
