Subject Re: [users@httpd] URL restriction
Date Sat, 16 Feb 2013 03:22:54 GMT
Hi Josh,

As per our application architecture virtual host is not the possibility as both the pages
are in single war file and developer don't want to create separate war for two modules.

I am trying with rewrite module but no luck. Will give a shot to location and let you know.

PN : Sorry for top posting as I m on handheld device.

Hello Vidyadhar,

1) In WebSphere, you need to create a new virtual host that you will only
map your admin module to. For example.. setup a virtual host in WAS called
"admin" to listen on on a new specific IP address and/or
port. Something like

You should also create a new virtual host in Apache with the same
IP/Name:port. You can then limit this virtual host to listen on a new IP
and/or port that will not be available to external users.

2) You could also use rewrites or Location blocks to limit by ip address,
but this has some flaws.

Their are several ways to do this, but these options appear to be the
easiest since you are dealing with WebSphere. Validate your plugin config
is correct after propagation.
