Reading .htaccess and Tomcat

view story

http://serverfault.com – I've have a java application running on tomcat and i'm using the apache mod_proxy module to pass the files to tomcat, however tomcat seems to be ignore the .htaccess files, here my vhost.conf. How can I instruct apache to read the .htaccess and still server the jsp. DirectoryIndex index.jsp index.htm index.html index.php ProxyRequests Off ProxyPreserveHost On <Proxy *> Order deny,allow Allow from all </Proxy> ProxyPass / http://localhost:9080/SouthSide_815/ ProxyPassReverse / http://localhost:9080/SouthSide_815/ RewriteLog /etc/httpd/logs/rewrite.log RewriteL (HowTos)
