Subject [ANNOUNCE] new mod_proxy_add_forward.c
Date Tue, 27 Feb 2001 08:35:16 GMT

My amusingly simple and amazingly useful (if I may say so) Apache
module just got an incredible small update. :-)

If you didn't know it's used in a mod_proxy/mod_perl combo setup as
described at

Before it just forwarded the original IP from the mod_proxy
processes and if you wanted to use VirtualHosts you had to do funny
tricks on the backend. Not anymore, or rather: You can do different
funny tricks. 

mod_proxy_add_forward.c now forwards the original Host: header and
$r->server_name from the mod_proxy process in the X-Host and
X-Server-Name headers.

Of course, the code might not work at all. In that case please send
me a mail (preferably with a patch :-) )
