Can JIRA be configured to work behind Apache at a subdirectory/non-root URL?

I'm trying to get JIRA working behind Apache at /dept/support/. Is this possible? Currently I'm using AJP but I could change that if necessary... So far, the app somewhat works. I was able to get through the setup procedure eventually. I get DNS issues for localhost being unresolved a lot, and the ancillary files like images, JS and CSS don't seem to work...

Update: Yep my base URL, context path and localhost are all working/set correctly. I got it mostly working by changing from AJP to HTTP and adding proxyPort, proxyName and schema, found at the URL in Dieter's comment.

I still get proxy timeouts/problems quite often...but so far so good.

Did you already read http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Integrating+JIRA+with+Apache ? Does "ping localhost" work in general on the jira server? Sometimes it's necessary to add an entry to /etc/hosts first
Especially important would be to set the base url to http://server:port/dept/support in General Configuration
