Subject [users@httpd] mod_proxy for same but versioned apps rooted at the same context on different hosts
Date Tue, 06 Nov 2007 01:43:33 GMT
I have multiple instances of versioned application rooted at the same
context but hosted on different machines. I have to access these
applications externally via reverse proxy like Apache in the following
way, if possible:
http://reverse_proxy_host/instance1/app maps to
http://reverse_proxy_host/instance2/app maps to
http://reverse_proxy_host/instanceN/app maps to
All links within our application are relative: /app/<resource>
Seems like an easy requirement but I have not been able to find solution
for it using mod_proxy, mod_proxy + mod_rewrite. There seems to be
solution that we have with mod_proxy + mod_proxy_html which modifies
relative links to /instance1/app/<resource>. Is it the only way to
accomplish this task?
Last soft requirement that I can live without is dynamic mappings. That
is, preferably database driven but could be text file driven mapping
Also, I wanted to clarify that I'm not looking for a load balancing
Any help appreciated including alternatives to Apache reverse proxy
