Apache 2 Reverse Proxy : Error 403: Serving contents of JSP files is not allowed


First of all this is my first post but certainly not the first time I have found solutions on here, so thanks to all for your help.

Here's my problem:

I have 2 Apache 2.0 servers running as a reverse proxy servers, one one each side of firewall. They run seamlessly, allowing us to use the same URL inside and outside the company.

I have a new server I need to access:

and I would like the users to use:

It seems to work, except I get the following error:

Error 403: Serving contents of JSP files is not allowed.

I also have another server which translates from port 80 to 8080 and that works so the problem is not there.

Have I forgotten to load a module or something? Help greatly appreciated.

Well one problem I managed to solve is that I included the /default.jsp in the ProxyPass and ProxyPassReverse statements.

This leaves me with the following situation:

ProxyPass /

lets me enter:

and he redirects me to the right page BUT the URL has changed and includes the full internal URL

If I then reenter the it works, but when cache is cleared it does the same again.

Question, is there a problem proxying directories after the port, such as :9080/dir/dir



apache, error, jsp, proxy, reverse
