I have an existing apache webserver, and I am trying to add YouTrack to it. Knowing anything about YouTrack is likely not relevant for this question, except that it's running Jetty 6.1.

So I have it working correctly on it's port. Note, the domain and all the DNS is done internally, the webserver is not exposed to the main internet. If I browse to:

http://my.web.site:7935/

Everything works perfectly, and the connection doesn't go through apache at all. I am trying to use mod_proxy to be able to browse, and I get redirected.

http://my.web.site/youtrack/ --> http://my.web.site/rootGo

Which is not found on my server (obviously); rootGo is related to youtrack. If I manually type in the correct url, this gets redirected:

http://my.web.site/youtrack/rootGo/ --> http://my.web.site/youtrack/login

Which shows a login box but it can't seem to find any of the CSS or other helper files.

Here's what I added to my existing <VirtualHost *:80>. Note: nothing else on this webserver is using mod_proxy:

    ProxyRequests Off
    ProxyVia On
    ProxyPreserveHost On

    # Set the permissions for the proxy
    <Proxy *>
      Order deny,allow
     Allow from all
    </Proxy>

    ProxyPass /youtrack/ http://my.web.site:7935/
    ProxyPassReverse /youtrack/ http://my.web.site:7935/

    <Location /youtrack>
      Order allow,deny
      Allow from all
    </Location>

Is this a problem with my configuration or with YouTrack? I tried to follow the instructions on the YouTrack website but they're pretty minimal and just refer me to the Jetty documentation which hasn't been super helpful either.

The problem with the redirect is what the ProxyPassReverse directive is trying to fix. Your syntax looks correct to me, but that particular directive is the one that would need to have corrections. –  Stephen Ostermiller Mar 13 at 20:52
    
If JS, CSS, and links are not working on your pages, you will likely also need to configure this module: apache.webthing.com/mod_proxy_html It has the ability to rewrite links in the pages that are being proxied. –  Stephen Ostermiller Mar 13 at 20:56
    
You also might want to try running it on a subdomain rather than in a subdirectory. It is often easier to get the proxy directives working when you don't have to change the path portion of the URL. –  Stephen Ostermiller Mar 13 at 20:57
    
@StephenOstermiller Thanks for your answer. If I try to switch to a subdomain I'd have to change my DNS configuration, right? –  durron597 Mar 13 at 21:24
    
@StephenOstermiller I know that I configured mod_proxy_http but I'm not sure I configured mod_proxy_html, do you think that's the problem? –  durron597 Mar 13 at 21:30
