I got this working finally with the following two additions to httpd.conf:
ProxyPass / http://aserver.yoursite.com/
ProxyPassReverse / http://aserver.yoursite.com/
Typing the name of the box this apache is running on into a browser gives me the first page of the webserver on aserver.yoursite.com
say this box is conan
into internet explorer gives
"hi this is the first web
page of aserver.yoursite.com"
so it works for https and http!!!! AWESOME
I spent so much time fiddling with squid and apache I wana scream!
I then ran a chkconfig --level 345 httpd on into my redhat ent 4 linux shell to make apache 2 restart upon reboot
