Subject mod_proxy doesn't proxy with %2F
Date Wed, 07 Mar 2007 10:28:22 GMT

Using the standard Redhat Enterprise 4, Apache 2.0.52 RPMs here. I have
a CommunigatePro server. It runs it's own http daemon for the
administration interface, and webmail. We needed to extend it in several
ways, so I stuck an Apache mod_proxy in front of it. Here's the config I
used which works fine:

ProxyPass        /
ProxyPassReverse /

However. When using webmail, if you go to view an attachment like for
example "filename.txt" from message "message_id" in folder "INBOX" the
url would look like:


That works absolutely fine. The problem is when the file is in a
subfolder, eg "INBOX/Archive". Then the url becomes:


With the url above, mod_proxy simply does *nothing*, I get an Apache 404
error message because the path doesn't exist locally because mod_proxy
hasn't attempted to do the proxying. I've used tcpdump to verify that
there is no connection to port 9100 when I make the request.

Is this a bug, or am I doing something dumb?
