Subject Re: [users@httpd] Apache2 proxying apache1+php
Date Wed, 26 Feb 2003 06:07:22 GMT
Can u send your proxy rules ? I think it can be done using simple
RewriteRules which will proxy all requests for https and coming on Apache 2
from apache1 and display the parsed page.

It would be easier to solve it if you can provide with the Proxy Rules you
have used.
