Subject Apache + Proxy: Bug Report (fwd)
Date Sun, 05 May 1996 20:10:59 GMT

not acked.

We probably need a entry on the bug report page for proxy bugs. I
can't answer them so they're all going to bounce to this list unless
someone volunteers to be the proxy guru.

Subject: Apache + Proxy: Bug Report

Hello! ... I have been fooling around with Apache 1.1b2 and the Proxy module
and haven't had a whole lot of success.  It used to be that everything that
I tried to request wouldn't come through (Netscape would report "Document
contains no data." ... Well, by the bye, I found a few pages that would
actually work.

Here is an example of a page that works:
[root@phair logs]# telnet localhost 8080
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
HTTP/1.0 200 Document follows
MIME-Version: 1.0
Server: CERN/3.0
Date: Sun, 05 May 1996 20:26:36 GMT
Content-Type: text/html
Content-Length: 886
<title>Error: Old host name in URL</title>

Here is an example that bombs (Notice that I tail -f the error log file
-while- I make the request):

[root@phair logs]# date
Sun May  5 13:27:01 CDT 1996
[root@phair logs]# tail -1 -f error_log &
[3] 1136
[root@phair logs]# [Sun May  5 13:26:55 1996] httpd: caught SIGSEGV, dumping
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
Connection closed by foreign host.
[root@phair logs]# [Sun May  5 13:27:11 1996] httpd: caught SIGSEGV, dumping

And my error_log file is -filled- with these "httpd: caught SIGSEGV, dumping
core" messages from my testing.  I don't know why one URL makes it work and
why the other doesn't...

Anyways, I am running Linux, kernel 1.3.98 (I have seen this exact behavior
under kernel 1.3.97 also).  There is nothing too special with my box...  I
am running no other extra modules except for the default modules in the
Configuration.tmpl and the Proxy module.  But, I would be glad to answer
other questions if you may have them!  Also, tell me if you would like the
core file!
