Subject RE: [users@httpd] What is the hierarchy/precedence of 2.0 directives? (Redirect problem)
Date Wed, 24 Aug 2005 16:59:39 GMT
On Aug 24, Axel-Stéphane  SMORGRAV (nospam-Axel-Stephane.SMORGRAV@europe.ad...:

Axel:  What do you mean by "URI stays as http://www.temple.edu/mmc/  and not as /sct/mmc/"
?? Do you mean what appears in the address bar is not /sct/mmc? Why would that change? You
do not do any redirect!
Axel:
Axel:  Furthermore, because of the ProxyPassReverse, any /sct/mmc/ in Location headers in
redirects will be rewritten into /mmc/.
Axel:
Axel:  To your browser, the fact that the path to the resource on the backend server is /sct/mmc
is totally transparent. That's reverse proxying.
Axel:
Axel:  What is the underlying problem?

Axel:
Axel:  BTW: I had a look at your site. Works great!
Axel:
Axel:  After looking at the site, I maybe understood a little better what you are after...
Axel:
Axel:  Could it be:
Axel:
Axel:  Redirect /mmc /sct/mmc
Axel:  ProxyPass  /sct/ http://SERVER.temple.edu/sct/
Axel:  ProxyPassReverse  /sct/ http://SERVER.temple.edu/sct/
Axel:
Axel:  is what you want??
Axel:
Axel:  -ascs



Hmmmm.... that's my problem:  I have the 2 ProxyPass for sct, as well as 2 ProxyPass for mmc.

I commented out the 2 for mmc and added the Redirect and it works.


(Thanks for the kudos about the website, but Im just the admin.  I dont design).

Axel:  Subject: [users@httpd] What is the hierarchy/precedence of 2.0 directives? (Redirect
problem)
Axel:
Axel:  Hello All:
Axel:
Axel:  Where can I find (or does anyone know) the order in which Apache preforms its directives?
 It may or may not solve the underlying problem below, but a recent discussion I had prompted
the above question.
Axel:
Axel:
Axel:  The underlying problem
Axel:
Axel:  	I have 2 entries in the file proxies.conf
Axel:  	--------------------------------------------------------------------
Axel:  	# proxy directives for http://www.temple.edu/mmc
Axel:  	RewriteRule ^/+mmc((/+.*)?$) http://SERVER.temple.edu/sct/mmc$1 [P]
Axel:  	ProxyPassReverse /mmc/ http://SERVER.temple.edu/sct/mmc/
Axel:  	--------------------------------------------------------------------
Axel:  	(not inside of a VirtualHost)
Axel:
Axel:
Axel:  	When I enter http://www.temple.edu/mmc, the request is proxied to
Axel:  	http://server.temple.edu/sct/mmc/  and the URI is re-written as
Axel:  	http://www.temple.edu/sct/mmc/.  This is what I expect and has
Axel:  	always worked as expected.
Axel:
Axel:  	The problem is when I enter http://www.temple.edu/mmc/  (note the trailing slash)
Axel:  	The request is still proxied to http://server.temple.edu/sct/mmc, but the
Axel:  	URI stays as http://www.temple.edu/mmc/  and not as /sct/mmc/.
Axel:
Axel:
Axel:
Axel:
Axel:  My question about the order of directives stems from trying to add
Axel:     Redirect permanment /mmc http://www.temple.edu/sct/mmc/ to httpd.conf to compensate.
Axel:
Axel:  I even tried anther RewriteRule, but that didnt work either.
Axel:     RewriteRule ^/+mmc/((/+.*)?$) http://SERVER.temple.edu/sct/mmc$1 [P]
Axel:
Axel:
Axel:  How can I fix the underlying problem?

Axel:  Thanks.

Axel:  Please do not CC me responses to my own posts.
Axel:  I'll read the responses on the list.
