Subject RE: [users@httpd] proxy only asp files
Date Tue, 18 Apr 2006 14:07:20 GMT
The directory layout stuff can be solved using a relatively simple rewrite rule:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^/([^/]+)/(.*) /home/$1/public-html/$2 

You could even enhance it so that it does the rewrite only if the user home directory actually

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond /home/$1/public-html -d
RewriteRule ^/([^/]+)/(.*) /home/$1/public-html/$2 

Don't forget:

<DirectoryMatch /home/[^/]+/public-html/>
	Allow from all
	Order Deny,Allow

or something allowing Apache to serve documents from the home directories.

With respect to your default document, I did not really get your point, but I am sure that
this can be dealt with using mod_rewrite.

Subject: Re: [users@httpd] proxy only asp files

hello :)

cheers for your feedback,   i have just tried what you said and i'm 
getting this ...

<%pageTitle="Page Title" %>

which just says the .asp files arn't being parsed by IIS

oh and i think i got something working with mod_rewrite but i had a big problem of ...

if i had a default document setup of say ..
index.php index.asp index.htm

if there was a default document of index.htm it will say file not found because apache was
asking IIS for the .asp file for the default document and IIS was giving back html code that
was sent on the to browser. :( and having the .asp file at the end of the Default document
line ment that if there wasn't a default document an index listing wasn't shown, but i want
an apache index listing if there isn't a default document.

I wish it would just work like that, would be so much easier

also the dir layout that is being hosted it set out something like the following ...


* = users file, could be anything
so its not just a single application if it was i would just sit it on a single dir and reverse
proxy that single dir, i have done that before.

I have started writing a perl app that will submit requests the same as what the client requested,
lol should be good for learning :).
