Problem with HTML-resource paths using Apache Proxy - Confluence Tomcat AJP

I'm running Confluence 5.4.2 on CentOS 6.5, and trying to use Apache to serve HTTPS to the client, connecting to the Confluence standalone tomcat via AJP.

Note: I already have this setup running perfectly on the same machine with Jira.

The Apache config contains:

ProxyPass 		/confluence 	ajp://localhost:28009/confluence/

And the server.xml contains:

<Context path="/confluence" docBase="../confluence" debug="0" reloadable="false" useHttpOnly="true">
                    <!-- Logger is deprecated in Tomcat 5.5. Logging configuration for Confluence is specified in confluence/WEB-INF/classes/ -->
                    <Manager pathname="" />


    <Connector port="28009" redirectPort="28443" enableLookups="false" protocol="AJP/1.3" URIEncoding="UTF-8" SSLEnabled="false" scheme="http" secure="false" />

The Confluence base URL is set to

I can access the base URL (works over https and http), but get a confluence HTML-page containing resources (images, javascripts, css) with links/sources/URLs like

(which gives a Confluence 404 error)

instead of works fine if I try to view the resource directly via the correct URL)

As far as I can see and check, I'm doing nothing else with Confluence than what is already working with Jira. Any idea or pointers what I am missing?

Duh, resolved by adding the missing "/" in the ProxyPass directive

ProxyPass /confluence/ ajp://localhost:28009/confluence/
