The uploads should not be served through the proxy.

#serve the uploads without proxy
ProxyPass /uploads !

Apache2 2.2.22

<Location /uploads>
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all

In a production environment, the same is also the case with /assets as rails will not server these.

In my case i must added

ProxyPass /uploads !


<Directory /absolute/path/to/gitlab/uploads>
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all

to my vhost file. Note that the <Directory>-directive only accept absolute paths.

The <Location> -directive is also an alternative, but the Apache documentation Link says is not recommended for files that are within the document root.

@axilleas axilleas Enhance existing apache config. Implement #50, #79, #93. Fix #10
Beware that adding `ProxyPass /uploads !` would be a security issue,
since uploads are publicly available without any authentification by default.
