Subject [users@httpd] External Application protected by a virtual path
Date Fri, 25 Jun 2004 10:21:32 GMT

I have got an issue in protecting an external application via Apache HTTP Server, I put 'pippo'
as virtual path for protecting the path.

In the mod_proxy I put:

<IfModule mod_proxy.c>
<Location /pippo>
Require valid-user
AuthType Basic
OssoLegacyApp off

ProxyPass /pippo/
ProxyPassReverse /pippo/

so, when I type the
link (application main page), the USMT external application main page is showed.

One issue is present, some components are not displayed (like images). I had a look in the
html code and the images have no absolute path.
In the Apache mod_proxy documentation 
(, for the ProxyPassReverse directive
description I have found: "... Apache will not rewrite other response headers, nor will it
rewrite URL references inside HTML pages. This means that if the proxied content contains
absolute URL references, they will by-pass the proxy..."

I don't know how to solve this issue or create a workaround for that.
Have you any idea?

Thanks a lot in advance
