Subject [users@httpd] Differences between ProxyPass and RewriteRule
Date Thu, 02 Sep 2004 21:37:51 GMT

I've figured out three ways to solve my problem and on the surface, they
*seem* to do the same thing. However, out of curiousity I'm wondering
what differences, if any, are going on in the background.

Basically what I am doing is telling Apache to fetch pages off of
another server, but not look like it is doing so. For example, when
people come to: I want Apache to send them to without them seeing in the URL bar that
anything has changed. 

So, here are the three ways I found... can anyone tell me about the
nuances between these different versions or where I might find a
comparison in the documentation?

Way #1

RewriteRule    ^/bob/(.*)$$1  [P,R]  

Way #2

RewriteRule    ^/alumni/(.*)$$1  [P]    

Way #3

ProxyPass           /bob/                                  
ProxyPassReverse    /bob/
