So extend your httpd configuration to proxy the ViewVC server; you'd
want to do that anyway. Something along these lines:

<Location /viewvc>
     ProxyPass http://localhost:49152/viewvc
     ProxyPassReverse http://localhost:49152/viewvc

and don't forget to load mod_proxy and mod_proxy_http (the command is
"a2enmod" on Ubuntu).

Really, this is basic stuff that's documented with examples all over the
place. Why not read the docs first and come here with actual problems?
