Over here we don't use the cgi or cgi-perl gateway but apache mod_proxy.

Configure your httpd.conf with:

        ProxyPass /yourapp/ http://ip_of_your_internal_swazoo:port/
        ProxyPassReverse /yourapp/ http://ip_of_your_internal_swazoo:port/

in your <VirtualHost> section. And have the mod_proxy (in apache 2.0
or 2.2the proxy, proxy_connect and proxy_http) modules enabled.
