Hi Carlos,

not sure you have everything in place to get the documented rules working here :

* use a virtualhost to put the rules in, like (do not forget to
activate it with a2ensite my_virtualhost) ::

 <VirtualHost *:80>

    ServerName mydomain.com

    ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/mydomain.log
    LogLevel warn
    CustomLog /var/log/apache2/mydomain.log combined

    RewriteEngine On # this one is important !
    RewriteLog /var/log/apache2/mydomain_rewrite.log
    RewriteLogLevel 3 # remove this as soon as debugged otherwise it
will fill your disk in quickly

    ProxyPreserveHost On # use this to preseve host if you use it in
your cw instance (particularly useful if you have distinct subdomains
handled by a single cw instance) ; anyway it can not hurt

    # YOUR RULES GO HERE (I just copied yours without checking - read
the above configured rewrite log to debug them)
    RewriteCond %(REQUEST_URI) ^/forge
    RewriteRule ^/forge$ /forge/
    RewriteRule ^/forge/(.*)$1 [L,P]


* do not forget to activate the rewrite and proxy_http modules (with
a2enmod rewrite ; a2enmod proxy_http) and to configure the proxy
module with something like "Allow from all" (please make sure you know
what you are doing here).

* then restart apache2 with /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

Hope it helps,
