Hi Joe,

Completely outside my experience, but some googling turned up this:

Comments #94 and #98 at 
seem to indicate that using ProxyPass inside a directional container 
(like <Directory> or <Location>) causes it to expect only one parameter, 
whereas you're giving it two.  The first parameter is being 
automatically determined based on the value of <Location>.

In the httpd manual I found only one example 
( of 
using ProxyPass inside a <Location> container, and it indeed does use 
only one parameter.

So it seems what you'd want to do is something like this:
        <Directory /projects/dc >
                Options FollowSymLinks
                AllowOverride None

                ProxyPass http://h111.MyDomain
                ProxyPassReverse http://h111.MyDomain


Also, whether you can even use ProxyPass inside of <Directory> is 
unknown to me, as the only examples I've seen are inside <Location> or 
nothing at all. Remember, what I'm telling you is strictly raw Internet 
research using Google.  I have no idea what I'm actually talking about here.
