      Just use a ProxyPass to the balancer with the ProxyPassReverse instead of the RewriteRule

      Description

      Looks like some compatability issues exist between Rewrites to the mod_cluster balancer and a ProxyPassReverse for it.

      <VirtualHost *:80>
      RewriteEngine On
      RewriteRule ^/foo/(.*)$ balancer://mycluster/foo/$1 [P,L]
      ProxyPassReverse /foo/ balancer://mycluster/foo/
      </VirtualHost>

      Requests served through the above VHost config fail with a 500. The log shows:

      Removing the ProxyPassReverse, the request works again. Looks like the balancer isn't found for some reason with both the Rewrite and ProxyPassReverse.
