Subject [users@httpd] Apache 2.2.6 on OS X and mod_rewrite
Date Sat, 01 Dec 2007 22:32:57 GMT
I just update my OS X 10.4 with Apache 2.2.6, this works fine but I am 
having problems with my Virtual Hosts.

Here is the version I am using:

Server version: Apache/2.2.6 (Unix)
Server built:   Nov 29 2007 20:06:12

In my /usr/local/apache2/conf/httpd.conf I have the standard conf file 
but have enabled the Virtual Hosts file:

ServerRoot "/usr/local/apache2"
Listen 80
LoadModule rewrite_module     modules/
LoadModule php5_module        modules/


# Virtual hosts
Include conf/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf


[1] <VirtualHost *:80>
[2]   DocumentRoot "/Users/me/Sites"
[3]   ServerName uk.expert_travel
[4]	<Directory "/Users/me/Sites">
[5]	    AllowOverride None
[6]	    Options None
[7]	    Order allow,deny
[8]	    Allow from all
[9]	</Directory>
[10] <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
[11]   RewriteEngine On
[12]   RewriteRule ^/(.*) http://localhost:8080/expert/$1 [P]
[13]   RequestHeader set X-Base-Path expert/
[14] </IfModule>
[15]   RewriteLogLevel 4
[16]   RewriteLog /tmp/rewrite.log
[17]   ErrorLog       /tmp/error.log
[18] </VirtualHost>

But on my:

Server version: Apache/2.0.52
Server built:   Sep 30 2004 18:20:43

The same, without lines [2 to 9], config file works without problem on 
the 2.0.52 version

Every time I enable the IfModule and try to access I get the following 
error in the logs

[Sat Dec 01 22:56:54 2007] [error] [client] attempt to make 
remote request from mod_rewrite without proxy enabled: 

and then get a 403 Forbidden Error

You don't have permission to access /;view on this server.

If on the other hand I remove lines [10 - 14] ie the Rewrite stuff all 
works fine.

How do I setup my httpd.conf to work with VirtualHost and also get the 
ReWrite to work?

Thanks for any pointers.
