Subject [users@httpd] Reverse / ProxyPass & static content
Date Mon, 26 Apr 2004 22:35:49 GMT

First, thanx for all the contributions I've had because things are 
working very well now. I have one last item I want to try :

I have Apache2 reverse proxying to a Tomcat webapp. I want to serve the 
statics from Apache, and I can see a variety of ways, such as 
FilesMatch, and now what you have been discussing.

I basically want to get as much speed as poss, so I'm wondering if 
rather than having a series of Alias commands (which don't seem to work) 
to map a request for /App/images/a.gif to a local 
/htdocs/MyApp1/images/a.gif, I can use what you said below to have a 
VirtualHost on port 80 to serve the statics.

Can any1 advise the best method to do this ?

Many thanks,
