Subject [users@httpd] problems with proxy and DirectoryIndex
Date Thu, 10 Feb 2005 19:47:50 GMT
Although I got some good discussion about various proxy items, we still
haven't been able to resolve this problem, so I'm hoping to restate it
and see if that generates some additional response.

We need to proxy any URL that ends in .cfm to another server for
handling.  This works great as long as the URL is complete (i.e.,

However, if DirectoryIndex must be consulted to complete the URL (i.e.,
"" where "index.cfm" is added by mod_dir),
the proxy fails (a better description is that it's ignored, because
Apache happily tries to process it locally).

When searching for resolutions through bugzilla, this exact behavior is
noted in bug #15112 at ...

However, while it states the fix will be in 2.0.51, we are still seeing
the same behavior in 2.0.52.

This is a major show-stopper for us, and we need to determine whether
this bug still really exists, or whether there is a configuration that
we are missing to make it behave when DirectoryIndex is consulted.  We
have pretty much gone through all suggestions to date without success.

This proxy worked fine in 1.3x, but we don't have the option of
downgrading to 1.3.  :-/
We're open to all suggestions.
