Many thanks for your explanation. But I think there is still a problem with the subfolder redirection. Because of we have 2 independent WEB sites – one on 172.26.5.5 and second on 192.168.6.6, but we want to access 192.168.6.6 via 172.26.5.5, and I thought it can be possible to achieve by means of some “virtual” non-existent folder. In other words I want to substitute address 172.26.5.5/somefolder/somepage for 192.168.6.6/somepage (192.168.6.6 WEB doesn’t contain somefolder!). On other hand, all requests to 172.26.5.5/anypage should continue to work, as it was working all the time.
But as I understand, the VirtualHost rule
ReverseProxy ^/somefolder/.* http://192.168.6.6/
will cause requests to be redirected to http://192.168.6.6/somefolder/..., that is incorrect in our case.
Another idea we have is to run proxy server on 172.26.5.5 at some separate port, e.g. 81. Thus it can be redirected from 172.26.5.5:81 to 192.168.6.6.
Can you pls advise?
Thank you again.
