OK, you have created a great web application and now you want to expose it to the world, or perhaps a limited subset of it. You probably don't want to allow full access to your application server so you need a proxy.

The apache proxy module (mod_proxy) can be used with a simple configuration like below:

<IfModule mod_proxy.c>

<Proxy *>
  Order allow,deny
  Allow from all
