How to configure a virtual host per JBoss profile on httpd using mod_cluster?

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • There are two virtual hosts in Apache (virtualhost1 and virtualhost2) and two profiles in JBoss EAP 6 (profile1 and profile2). However there is a need to restrict the virtualhost1 to only serve contexts deployed to profile1, the same for virtualhost2 and profile2.
  • How can we isolate multiple JBoss instances to particular host names when connected to the same Apache server using mod_cluster?

From mod_cluster.conf:

ManagerBalancerName mycluster

From virtualhost1 and virtualhost2:

ProxyPass        / balancer://mycluster/ stickysession=JSESSIONID|jsessionid nofailover=On
ProxyPassReverse / balancer://mycluster/
