Subject [users@httpd] Help with Apache <Location> directive
Date Mon, 01 Oct 2007 21:22:43 GMT


I am attempting to forward requests sent to Apache httpd server to a
cluster of appservers sitting behind Apache. I am using the <Location>
directive to achieve this functionality.
But am not sure how to force Apache to handle this particular situation:
<Location "/xfer">
send to either server1 or server2
</Location>

<Location "/xfer/1">
send to server 1
</Location>

<Location "/xfer/2">
send to server 2
</Location>

What is happening is that  Apache takes the first part of the URL path(ie.
"/xfer") and forwards the request.  It ignores the "/1" and "/2"  in the
path as soon as it matches /xfer.
How can i force it to match the whole pattern specified in the Location
directive? (e.g http://acme.com/xfer/1/xyzServlet - send to server 1,
http://acme.com/xfer/2/xyzServlet - send to server 2)

Thanks

Ramdas
