Ok everything seems ok, but I'm unable to login.
If I type in username and password the page reload - but there is no 'your Profile'-page etc.
I can jump arround in the forum - quite nice but if i answer a topic or something like that I'm 'Anonymous'.
For testing I connect direct to the forum not over the apache, after disableing the redirect and proxied statement in the SystemGlobals.properties file - everything is ok. Login works the management Menue is available ...

Apache proxy rules aren't one of my Forte's... it may be related to cookies and making sure you're config file has the right URL for jForum.
Alternatively, I strongly recommend using the jk_module to connect TomCat and the Apache HTTPD servers. IMHO, it's far more seamless and trouble free than trying to keep all the proxy rules straight. Plus there are a lot of bonus stuff like a Tomcat ApacheConfig listener that can automatically create the Apache HTTPD config statements for ALL your webapps that just has to be included in your HTTPD config file.
The best place to start is http://tomcat.apache.org/connectors-doc/ But there are also a bunch of nice articles floating around on the Inet to help as well. [originally posted on jforum.net by monroe]
I think the problem is that you are changing the hostname, and that cookies are associated with it, so that when you log in your session gets stuck with the old server name.
I would suggest as monroe says to switch to using mod_jk to pass the request from apache httpd to tomcat, or using tomcat directly without apache. I should also point out that using mod_jk would also resolve possible problems your clients might have accessing port 8081. [originally posted on jforum.net by andune76]
