Subject RE: Need help with a particular usage scenario
Date Wed, 20 Jan 2016 20:04:46 GMT
Ah, thank you very much, updating the maps did change things! Right now I am getting error
messages that kinda make sense.

So, here’s my new remap settings:

map  http://localhost:80/
reverse_map http://localhost:80/

When I try to hit in the browser now, I get
a 502 response after a lengthy timeout:

internal error - server connection terminated

and on the server, in error.log, the following gets recorded:

20160120.14h51m15s RESPONSE: sent status 502 (Connect Error <internal error
- server connection terminated/-19999>) for 'http://localhost:80/phpinfo2.php'

I tried this both using localhost in the maps, and FQDNs everywhere, the result is the same.
I most definitely can get this URL on the server using curl:

$ curl -Is http://localhost:80/phpinfo2.php | grep ^HTTP
HTTP/1.1 200 OK

So it looks like for some weird reason, TrafficServer is trying – and failing – to contact
the origin provider.

Any idea what might be going wrong?

Thanks so much for your help!

Hmmm. A parent proxy set up might work better. The logging of empty URLs is a bug in the logging
code which has been fixed (current ATS version is 6.0). If you are doing remap, you need a
forward map as well like

map<> http://mediawiki.mycompany/<http://mediawiki.mycompany/>

reverse_map, if I recall correctly, only applies to response headers from the origin, to modify
them to use the proxy URL instead of the origin URL (as supplied by the origin).

I'd recommend moving up in versions, to at least 5.3.x.

Hi all,

I need to set up a caching proxy to not work as a proxy, but rather to simply provide caching
upon direct access. For example:

There’s a Mediawiki installation running at<>
And I need to set up a proxy on an alternative port,<>,
which would do nothing but serve up the traffic from the default port, but cached (we aren’t
trying to cache the entire MediaWiki installation, but rather provide an alternative entry
point for a specific use case).

I am having trouble figuring out what it would take to set up TrafficServer to do this. I
set it up (Ubuntu Vivid, TS 3.2.4), but TS logs empty URLs (http:///) and of course fails
to find them – presumably because it doesn’t receive the customary proxy HTTP headers;
so I hit<>,
and only get back 404s.

Is there an easy way to accomplish what I am looking to do? Here’s the config I have right

In records.config (in addition to all the standard defaults):

CONFIG proxy.config.http.server_ports STRING 8080
CONFIG proxy.config.http.cache.http INT 1
CONFIG proxy.config.reverse_proxy.enabled INT 1
CONFIG proxy.config.url_remap.remap_required INT 1
CONFIG proxy.config.url_remap.pristine_host_hdr INT 1

And in remap.config:


I have never set up a proxy before.

Any suggestions on what I need to do? Thanks.
