    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:

    root@ip-xxx-xxx-xxx [/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
    ## User eagl0028 # Needed for Cpanel::ApacheConf
    <IfModule mod_suphp.c>
    suPHP_UserGroup eagl0028 eagl0028
    <IfModule !mod_disable_suexec.c>
    SuexecUserGroup eagl0028 eagl0028
    ProxyRequests Off
    <Proxy *>
    Order deny,allow
    Allow from all
    ProxyPreserveHost On
    ProxyPass /
    ProxyPassReverse /
    CustomLog /usr/local/apache/domlogs/ "%{%s}t %I .\n%{%s}t %O ."
    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
