Gadgets not working with apache front end

As in the directions ( .... I have the following set up:

This is a 'stand-alone' install:


<Context path ="/JRA" ... >


ProxyPass /JRA http://localhost:8080/JRA
ProxyPassReverse /JRA http://localhost:8080

This is on a RHEL 5 box. I'm using multiple IPs in my virtual host config (one is dedicated to JIRA .. going to add SSL later, butjust want to get the basic proxy part working first).

Everything works fine, can log in etc., but gadgets don't work. Nothing in the dashboard and get 'gadget directory failed to load' when I click to add gadget. I only have it configured to respond to a single URL and am using a dedicated IP for each vHost in apache. No 404's in apache except for favicon and /secure/useravatar?bla=blah ...

Any ideas?

As noted above ...

ProxyRequests off
ProxyPreserveHost on

in the httpd.conf VirtualHost stanza did it.

Not to be daft, but is it the missing context on the reverse proxy statment? (no JRA shown above)

That would make responses look to come from a different URL.

ProxyPass /JRA http://localhost:8080/JRA
ProxyPassReverse /JRA http://localhost:8080/JRA # <-- Added context

Yes ... I had to type it in here as opposed to copy/paste. Legitimate question ... but it's something different, although similarly simple. I noted that I did *not* have:

ProxyRequests off
ProxyPreserveHost on

in my httpd.conf VirtualHost stanza ... that did it.

Sometimes, you just need a night of sleep to see the obvious. ;-)
