    Are you trying to test it on your own computer? Have you tried the loopback address(127.0.0.1)? And If that is working, you will probably need to set up some port forwarding to get the requests from outside the proxy to your web server. The proxy is a filter making sure that traffic on any port gets to the correct place. So you will need to redirect port 80 in your proxy server to your computer to get the default web address.

    yes i am trying to do it on my computer. i was trying to test a PHP script for a RSS reader that i was making. the thing is i am getting errors. i found out that my apache server was not going out. how do i set up port forwarding ? i really need the internet to test it out as i will be able to know the wrking action of parsing. my proxy is 192.168.2.15:3128. this is what i use for connection on internet. its a squid server at the college to which to all students connect for internet. how do i make my apache webserver access it? how do i redirect ?

    Ah, wait, so the problem here is that you're trying to make Apache connect to *other* servers right?

    I have certain folders on my webserver proxy to my fileserver. The main thing with this setup is to have both the ProxyPass and ProxyPassReverse directives for the folder/server combination.
