Hi all,
I installed Alfresco-5.0.a on Centos 6.4 64 bit (Tomcat web service), everything work fine, my users can access to alfresco by typing http://192.168.0.8:8080/alfresco or http://192.168.0.8:8080/share
192.168.0.8 is my internal ip address .
Now I want to do redirect by Apache mod_jk so :

http://alfresco.mydomain.com will be redirected to http://192.168.0.8:8080/share
http://alfresco.mydomain.com/alfresco will be redirected to http://192.168.0.8:8080/alfresco

I followed this article: https://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/Deploying_To_Server
This is my confifguration:


cat /opt/alfresco-5.0.a/tomcat/conf/Catalina/localhost/root.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Context path="" docBase="share.war">
</Context>



cat /etc/httpd/conf.d/mod_jk.conf

LoadModule    jk_module  modules/mod_jk.so
<IfModule jk_module>
  # —- Where to find workers.properties
        JkWorkersFile   conf.d/workers.properties
  # —- Where to put jk logs
  JkLogFile       logs/mod_jk.log
  # —- Set the jk log level [debug/error/info]
  JkLogLevel    info
  # —- Select the timestamp log format
  JkLogStampFormat "[%a %b %d %H:%M:%S %Y] "
  JkRequestLogFormat "%w %R %T"
  # —- Send everything for context /examples to worker named worker1 (ajp13)
  JkMountFileReload       "0"


</IfModule>



cat /etc/httpd/conf.d/workers.properties

worker.list=tomcat

worker.tomcat.port=8009
worker.tomcat.host=localhost
worker.tomcat.type=ajp13
worker.tomcat.lbfactor=1



cat /etc/httpd/conf.d/alfresco.conf

<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerName alfresco.mydomain.com
ProxyRequests   Off
JkMount /* tomcat
</VirtualHost>


My server redirect request from 80 to 8080 successfully , but it don't append "/share" to URL when my users type http://alfresco.mydomain.com or http://192.168.0.8:8080 on web browser, they must use absolute path

This is log when startup alfresco:
