I am not sure I underatns what you did, but you probably a) assigned
'root' an invalid value, or worse, b) didn't set the followup on the
proxy properly.

If a) you can recover by manually editing config/http-server.props, if
b) edit the config file to and set 'root' to "root" your server will
stop working as a proxy, but it will give you back the /Admin stuff so
that you can repair any damages.

That's a know bug in 1.0alpha5, it is now fixed.

rm config/cache/*
