Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-321) Futon breaks when used with a reverse proxy
Date Thu, 28 Jan 2010 03:59:34 GMT


Damjan Georgievski commented on COUCHDB-321:

In my opinion it would be better if Futon only uses relative urls. 
That way it'll not require any hacks nor admin configuration.

Here's a patch against 0.11.0b3fa3b673-git that implements this.

With this patch all except one tests pass when running directly on CouchDB.

Using Nginx as a proxy some of the tests fail regardless of if it's proxying on the root or
on a usb-url, because Nginx rewrites url's (so any tests with test_suite_db%2Fwith_slashes
fail). Also tests expecting the Server http header to be CouchDB fail too. The config.httpd.port
== port check obviously fails too.

The oauth test is the only one that fails without the proxy, and it's because it creates externall
urls (http://) to which this patch prepends ".." There are several ways to solve this, but
I think .request should have an _external flag or something.

> It is often convenient to reverse proxy CouchDB at a url like /couch.  Unfortunately,
while CouchDB will work perfectly in this situation, Futon cannot handle it as jquery.couch.js
uses absolute URLs to access all CouchDB functions.
> I've attached a small patch that fixes this problem by:
> 1. Adding a urlPrefix attribute to $.couch which it uses to construct its URLs.
> 2. Adding logic to the futon.js constructor that figures out a suitable prefix and sets
$.couch.urlPrefix to use this.
> Any client code that makes use of $.couch will need to do something similar.  Since only
the application and the adminstrator will know what the prefix should be or how to deduce
it, I didn't really know of a better way to handle this.
