The end user submits the following url, and it redirects to

I am getting lost on the configuration.

You will need to set the apache internal proxy and then create a configuration file that handles the redirection for requests.

<Proxy *>
Order deny,allow
Allow from all
ProxyRequests       Off
ProxyPreserveHost On
ProxyPass           /confluence       http://localhost:8088/confluence
ProxyPassReverse    /confluence       http://localhost:8088/confluence

So if your website is then you should access it using Please make sure you have the same configuration on the Confluence Administration page other wise you could encounter link issues.
