This is not really a seam question but a apache / tomcat one.
Anyway one way is to get tomcat to serve your app as in the root.
Here is an example tomcat server.xml for this:
<Host name="www.mysite.co.uk" debug="0" unpackWARs="true" autoDeploy="true" appBase="/home/tomcat/apache-tomcat-5.5.17/webapps/MyWar"> <Context path="" docBase="" debug="1"/> </Host>
Then the apache proxy stuff will work. Better would be to use mod-jk as that will handle errors better, etc.
thanks a lot for your post - your hint worked for me!
