Subject Re: [users@httpd] using protocols other than http

Eric thanks but I had seen those links.

For this setup I am facing this problem
In all the vhost definitions I use 
ProxyPreserveHost On

but all the internal servers which are having domain names as

and one one of the above I have 16 different websites which have to be accessed as

 and so on.

All of this are behind a server on which I have used mod_proxy 

here I used
<VirtualHost *:80>
ProxyPass /
ProxyPassReverse /

(Internally also we are addressing these servers with same domain names)

<VirtualHost *:80>
ProxyPass /
ProxyPassReverse /

like this 2 more vhosts now comes the problem the other domains on
are different type of content management systesm
which we would like to access as

I tried adding in the 2nd vhost definition as above

<VirtualHost *:80>
ProxyPass /
ProxyPassReverse /

ProxyPass /opi http://opi_on_kki
ProxyPassReverse /opi http://opi_on_kki

ProxyPass /541 http://541_on_kki
ProxyPassReverse /541 http://541_on_kki

ProxyPass /msi http://541_on_kki
ProxyPassReverse /msi http://541_on_kki


Some of these content management systems generate URLS
at / and not as 
or /541
so that my ProxyPass Rules work.

If 2 CMSes are generating a URL which is having page elements being served at /
then how do I handle this situation?

The manual has basic examples as well:
