mod proxy not working on apache with cpanel and whm

hey all,

My plight was initially tracked here:

apache2 - mod proxy not working on apache - Server Fault

The purpose of me installing is so that when on site, when I click a link to site (lets pretend its ip address is, the browser will load the application on while mainitaing on address bar of browser.

So I followed this tutorial:

Install Mod_Proxy Apache module on WHM/CPanel CeEntOS Linux Server Without Recompiling Apache

I loaded the following modules:

[email protected] [/tmp/httpd-2.2.21/modules/proxy]# ls -l

-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 88708 Jan 5 08:22 /usr/local/apache/modules/*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 49654 Jan 5 08:23 /usr/local/apache/modules/*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 73196 Jan 5 08:23 /usr/local/apache/modules/*

My virtual host looks like this:

DocumentRoot /home/eagl0028/public_html
ServerAdmin [email protected]
## User eagl0028 # Needed for Cpanel::ApacheConf
<IfModule mod_suphp.c>
suPHP_UserGroup eagl0028 eagl0028
<IfModule !mod_disable_suexec.c>
SuexecUserGroup eagl0028 eagl0028

CustomLog /usr/local/apache/domlogs/ combined
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /home/eagl0028/public_html/cgi-bin/
However, when I run:

service httpd stop
service httpd start

And then post to relative url:

<form accept-charset="UTF-8" action="/users/sign_in" class="user_new" id="user_new" method="post">

Im expecting it to post to but it doesnt. I check the server logs and no sign of a request coming in. All that occurs is a 404 not found error with the url on top being

So apparently, Im doing something wrong. Is there an easier way to accomplish what I am trying to do through cPanel interface?

thanks for response
