Subject Re: some key fields of request_rec are null
Date Thu, 07 Mar 2013 18:56:33 GMT
The handler here is a custom handler written by me.

How does one retrieve the Scheme from the incoming request in such user written handlers?

Hi Nce

1) You didn't say what handler - I assume you mean the default response 
2) Although request_rec might be misleading these days with many 
server-side frameworks distinguishing between "Response" and "Request" 
objects, it doesn't quite work that way in Apache; the request_rec has 
worked pretty much the way it does for a loooooooong time.  So 
r->content_type is actually used to set the *response* content type. 
You might want to get Content-Type from r->headers_in

All the best,
