i have the corporate web server on one machine and confluence on another, how do i link the confluence so when i go to the main site http://example.com/wiki it displays the confluence login on the other machine and the end user is never aware of the existance of a separate machine from browsing?
on the confluence machine under apache i'm using proxypass as follows:
and that works fine for browsing on the confluence machine.
on the corp web server apache config i have:
and this does not work, i get a very strange url returned when i try to browse to http;//example.com/wiki/
and /wiki/ has been removed...
The corporate server should be set up to proxy the connection to Confluence.
This is a very common thing to do, and the standard docs are for Apache - see https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Running+Confluence+behind+Apache (They're easy to translate to most other web servers, with the exception of IIS which is a bit more painful because it's not a great system, but still possible)
But, comparing this with one I've got working here, a couple of points: Your corporate server is missing the port number - you really do want to proxy directly to the confluence system, not via another proxy. You're missing the ProxyHTMLURLMap required when you're not proxying the same paths
