Subject Re: [users@httpd] Reverse Proxy Apache using two ports
Date Thu, 14 Oct 2004 17:25:14 GMT
  By default, apache has SSL engine on and hence it works for https and 
443(I assume means that https is working 
fine??). But probably encrytion does not happen because the certificates are 
not present.
  Right now I am just checking for it working on https and 443 and am 
waiting for the certificate to be purchased. As I said earlier, it works 
fine for both http and https if I have the ProxyPass in the Main server 
   I initially added the VirtualHost section for both ports in httpd.conf. 
Later I tried adding the VirtualHost for 443 in ssl.conf. Even then it does 
not seem to work for https.
  It does work with https and 443 if the ProxyPass is part of the Main 
Server Directive. And if I add VirtualHosts, works only for http.
  Pls let me know if I have misunderstood anything.
