URL is changing after rewrite with proxy flag

beer9 asked
Last Modified: 2016-12-08
I am running a JIRA server behind a apache web server and using rewrite with proxy flag to serve it.

I have below entry in httpd.conf

#Rewrite rule for JIRA
RewriteCond     %{HTTP_HOST}    ^jira.example.com    [NC]
RewriteRule     ^/(.*)$$1    [P]

Open in new window

But when I access jira.example.com then the URL in my browser changes from jira.example.com to I am not sure what I am doing wrong. I do not want URL to be changed
