Configure the mod_proxy_ajp module by creating a new Apache configuration file.

$ vim {{{ajpconf}}}

   # When specifying additional mappings via the ProxyPass directive be aware that the first matching rule wins. Overlapping urls of
   # mappings have to be ordered from longest URL to shortest URL.
   # Example:
   #   ProxyPass /ajax      balancer://oxcluster_with_100s_timeout/ajax
   #   ProxyPass /ajax/test balancer://oxcluster_with_200s_timeout/ajax/test
   # Requests to /ajax/test would have a timeout of 100s instead of 200s 
   # See:
   # - http://httpd.apache.org/docs/current/mod/mod_proxy.html#proxypass Ordering ProxyPass Directives
   # - http://httpd.apache.org/docs/current/mod/mod_proxy.html#workers Worker Sharing

If you want to secure your Apache setup via HTTPS (which is highly recommended) or if you have proxies in front of your Apache please follow the instructions at:

to properly instruct the backend about the security status of the connection and the remote IP used to contact the backend.
