Adds a per-directory proxy to some domain
A proxy maps some URL on a virtual server to another webserver. This means that requests for any page under that URL path will be forwarded to the other site,
which could be a separate machine or another webserver process on the same system (such as Tomcat for Java or Mongrel for Ruby on Rails).
--domain parameter must be given and followed by a virtual server's domain name. The
--path parameter is also mandatory, and must be followed by a local URL path like
/rails or even
/. Finally, you must give the
--url parameter, followed by a URL to forward to like
If running Apache 2.0 or later with the
mod_proxy_balancer module, the
--url parameter can be given multiple times. Your webserver will then round-robin balance requests between all the URLs, which should serve the same content. This is useful for load-balancing between multiple backend servers.
If you want to turn off proxying for some URL path, the
--no-proxy flag can be given instead of
--url. This is useful if you have proxying enabled for
/ but want to serve content for some sub-directory locally.
