Yesterday Ofri and I talked about the Kneset project.  It reminded me an
issue we had.
The site url seems different with "runserver" then through the apache. when
I run the ./manage.py the request url is processed according to the urls.py.

for detecting it is django we used /serve/ as url (our project is also
called serve). but while running the server in standalone it had no

but that can't work since my django does not know the /serve/
We want to swallow that "/serve/" prefix so everything would be as "usual"
thought the url is a bit different.

so in settings.py we directed to a different urls.py

# ROOT_URLCONF = 'serve.urls'
# skip the prefix /serve/
ROOT_URLCONF = 'serve.prefixurls'

which in turns delegated to the usual urls.py
# prefixurls.py
import os
from django.conf.urls.defaults import *
from django.conf import settings
import serve.proxy.views
urlpatterns = patterns('',
             (r'^serve/', include('serve.urls')),

Now the standalone server:
and the apache
