Subject [users@httpd] apache 2.0 as reverse proxy using mod_rewrite
Date Thu, 23 Jun 2005 15:23:58 GMT
i have some difficulties using apache webserver as a reverse proxy. i am
sure it has to do something with url rewriting.
the situation is as follows.
- at our company we have some external ip address accessible via the
internet. these ip addresses has to be assigned to the external ethernet
card of the apache machine. we want to terminate ssl connections on the
reverse proxy so we are using ip based virtual hosting  which works
- on the second ethernet card we have a connection to the actual
multiple ip's -------------reverse proxy---------------multiple websites
we have a complex application running on the reverse proxy and it does
authentication to another website using the same reverse proxy
https://webserver ------------ reverse proxy ----------
http://webserver-internal (application redirects to
https://login ------------------- reverse proxy -----------
http://login-internal (application does authentication)
https://webserver ------------ reverse proxy ----------
httpd conf for virtual host:
Listen ip-address:443
<VirtualHost ip-address:443>
    ServerAdmin webmaster@webserver
    ServerName webserver
    ProxyPass / http://webserver-internal/
    ProxyPassReverse / http://ip-address-internal/
    SSLEngine on
    SSLCertificateFile /etc/httpd/conf/ssl.crt/webserver.crt
    SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/httpd/conf/ssl.key/webserver.key
    ErrorLog logs/error_log_webserver
    TransferLog logs/access_log_webserver
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteRule ^/$ https://webserverl/$1 [R,L]
it is strange because i get a http 302 return in the browser and does
not continue.... it reaches webserver-internal with statement found 302
and then it stops.... it terminates ssl as expected...
what am i doing wrong?
