No protocol handler was valid for the URL error while using proxy

If you are using Apache HTTPD as a proxy and get error:
No protocol handler was valid for the URL

make sure you have enabled modules mod_proxy, proxy and proxy_http.

If this does not help, another thing to check is that the ProxyPass directive contains the trailing slash of the URL it is redirecting to:
ProxyPass /
ProxyPassReverse /
