Thanks, Alex. I tried the above and it does work. If I point to
http://domain:3000/app1, my  app works perfectly.

However, when I turn on the ProxyPass in Apache to port 80, and then point
to
http://domain/app1

The app goes into an endless loop.

Checking the logs, my app is initially correctly being routed to my default
controller and method (ie: http://domain/app1/items/index). However when
method 'items' redirects to method 'view_list', the application routes to:
http://domain/items/view_list

So basically it's not applying the /app1 prefix to all redirects.

Here's a log excerpt when I access my app1 home page (just relevent lines):

Processing ItemsController#index (for 172.27.6.134 at 2006-09-08 09:55:10)
[GET]
  Parameters: {"action"=>"index", "controller"=>"items"}
<snip>
Redirected to http://domain/app1/items/view_list
Completed in 0.03146 (31 reqs/sec) | DB: 0.00549 (17%) | 302 Found [
http://domain/items/view_list]

As you can see, the last line is the problem - no app1

So it seems I'm still missing a step.

My settings in my apache conf are simple:

<VirtualHost *>
        DocumentRoot /var/www
   # the usual other settings <snip>

    ProxyPass /app1 http://localhost:3000
    ProxyPassReverse /app1 http://localhost:3000
    ProxyPreserveHost on

</VirtualHost>

What am I still missing?
