Subject mod_proxy _rewrite to SSL a backend server
Date Thu, 17 Jan 2002 16:22:30 GMT
I have Apache 1.3.22 on RH7.1 Linux as a Frontend server running SSL secured through :443.
 It is enabled with mod_proxy and mod_rewrite.  It is Internet accessible at

A Backend server is also running Apache (non-SSL!) with a legacy "application" site that is
cgi driven.  It is intranet accessible at

I would like to have requests to Frontends's URL be a
transparent passthrough / rewrite for requests to without having
to recode anything on Backend.

The result should be Internet output from: or or
or whatever else the Backend spews forth.

Can this be done with mod's _proxy and _rewrite?  What I though should work was:

--- snip httpd.conf----
<Directory />
RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^application/(.*)$$1 [P]</Directory>

This brings some of the images and html forward, but the links from the Backend to /cgi-bin/foo.cgi
are still tied to, so I conclude that I've missed something
to make them /application/cgi-bin/foo.cgi
