Subject RE: [users@httpd] What is the hierarchy/precedence of 2.0 directives? (Redirect problem)
Date Wed, 24 Aug 2005 16:01:15 GMT
What do you mean by "URI stays as http://www.temple.edu/mmc/  and not as /sct/mmc/" ?? Do you
mean what appears in the address bar is not /sct/mmc? Why would that change? You do not do
any redirect!

Furthermore, because of the ProxyPassReverse, any /sct/mmc/ in Location headers in redirects
will be rewritten into /mmc/.

To your browser, the fact that the path to the resource on the backend server is /sct/mmc
is totally transparent. That's reverse proxying.

What is the underlying problem?

Subject: [users@httpd] What is the hierarchy/precedence of 2.0 directives? (Redirect problem)

Hello All:

Where can I find (or does anyone know) the order in which Apache preforms its directives?
 It may or may not solve the underlying problem below, but a recent discussion I had prompted
the above question.


The underlying problem

	I have 2 entries in the file proxies.conf
	--------------------------------------------------------------------
	# proxy directives for http://www.temple.edu/mmc
	RewriteRule ^/+mmc((/+.*)?$) http://SERVER.temple.edu/sct/mmc$1 [P]
	ProxyPassReverse /mmc/ http://SERVER.temple.edu/sct/mmc/
	--------------------------------------------------------------------
	(not inside of a VirtualHost)


	When I enter http://www.temple.edu/mmc, the request is proxied to
	http://server.temple.edu/sct/mmc/  and the URI is re-written as
	http://www.temple.edu/sct/mmc/.  This is what I expect and has
	always worked as expected.

	The problem is when I enter http://www.temple.edu/mmc/  (note the trailing slash)
	The request is still proxied to http://server.temple.edu/sct/mmc, but the
	URI stays as http://www.temple.edu/mmc/  and not as /sct/mmc/.




My question about the order of directives stems from trying to add
   Redirect permanment /mmc http://www.temple.edu/sct/mmc/ to httpd.conf to compensate.

I even tried anther RewriteRule, but that didnt work either.
   RewriteRule ^/+mmc/((/+.*)?$) http://SERVER.temple.edu/sct/mmc$1 [P]


How can I fix the underlying problem?





Thanks.
Birl
