Confluence doesn't care about Server Base URL

Hi

I've just installed the Confluence trial. The default server URL is localhost:8090, the external URL is tornado.umbrellanet.ch/confluence. I'm redirecting traffic via .htaccess

RewriteRule "confluence/(.*)$" http://localhost:8090/confluence/$1 [NE,P]

I've followed the steps in https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Configuring+the+Server+Base+URL and defined the Server Base URL as

http://tornado.umbrellanet.ch/confluence

Also, checking the BANDANA 'atlassian.confluence.settings' look ok. In the server.xml, I have

<Context path="/confluence" ...

Regardless of all above, Confluence is constantly redirecting me to localhost:8090. What am I doing wrong?

Best regards
Simon

Found the answer here:

https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Using+Apache+with+mod_proxy

The 'proxyName' on the Connector in the server.xml was missing.

I've found 1 place where the localhost:8090 still shows up: in the connected JIRA installation, under Admin -> Application Links, Confluence shows up with "http://tornado.umbrellanet.ch/confluence";. When I click on "Edit", there's a second lonk displayed, that one is http://localhost:8090/confluence.
