Subject [users@httpd] Can't get "stickysession" to work
Date Thu, 05 Jan 2006 14:21:28 GMT
Hello Everyone,

We're using apache 2.2.0 as caching proxy in front of several
application servers. No matter what I tried, I can't get "stickysession"
to see my appservers session-cookie :(

<VirtualHost *:80>
  RewriteEngine on
  RewriteRule ^(.*) balancer://mycluster$1 [P,L] stickysession=_ZopeId
  <Proxy balancer://mycluster>

Now when I access the cookie "_ZopeId" is set
correctly as I can see in FireFox options:
Name: _ZopeId
Content: NonChangingSessionKey 
Path: /
Send For: Any type of connection
Expires: at end of session

But apache continues to distribute further requests between app1 and
app2. Where am I wrong? Do I need to put something around the
cookie-name or something?

This keeps me up at night for a few days now... Many thanks in advance
for any hint!
