I have been using galaxy succesfully for my work using its internal
web-server. Recently I wanted to use it over the internet and so, I
configured it with apache at /galaxy of apache's root. I followed all the
instructions in setting up the proxy redirection. But I think the
re-direction is not happening. I highly appreciate any suggestions to
correct the issue.

I checked for the mod_proxy, mod_proxy_http etc modules and they are present
and switched on.

Apache gives the following error in its error_log file:

[Thu Aug 04 14:15:56 2011] [error] [client] File does not exist:

Galaxy was set up in the directory /home/galaxy/galaxy-dist
The lines specific for proxy setting in  universe_wsgi.ini  are as follows:
use = egg:Paste#http
port = 8080
host = localhost
use = egg:PasteDeploy#prefix
prefix = /galaxy
filter-with = proxy-prefix
cookie_path = /galaxy
use_remote_user = True
remote_user_maildomain = unl.edu

httpd.conf settings:
