If you want your clients to access OWA through HTTPS you need to add the directives you mention
below to you SSL-enabled virtual host (probably to what you refer as ssl.conf).

You should have a section starting with <VirtualHost *:443> or similar somewhere in
your configuration. That section contains "SSLEngine On". That's where you need to add your
Proxy Pass directives as well as "SSLProxyEngine ON". You do not need ProxyVia.

Subject: Re: [users@httpd] Reverse proxy help

My apache installation is RPM-based, so recompiling is not an option. That being said, I do
have ssl support enabled (mod_ssl is installed).

Regarding the SSLProxyEngine problem I had, at first I tried adding that directive to ssl.conf
- apache didn't like that. So, I added it to httpd.conf - apache was happy, both errors gone.
So now, I get to the webmail login page(OK, it's actually OpenWebmail), but not in ssl mode.
In other words, instead of seeing, I see That's progress, but not what I'm after.

Further, if I try to log in I get an error that the path to OpenWebmail isn't found, even
though it appears that I've larady reverse proxied that path.

Here's what I have now:

ProxyRequests off

ProxyVia on

SSLProxyEngine on

ProxyPass /openwebmail/

ProxyPass /data/

ProxyPassReverse /openwebmail/

ProxyPassReverse /data/

Line spaces are just for clarity. The first few directives are just things I'm trying - I'm
not sure what affect they have. The directives dealing with /data/ have to do with images
and other OpenWebmail pieces. But, it seems that the only way I can get the main graphic on
the log in page, though, it to specify it with the ProxyPass and ProxyPassReverse directives.

Sorry if I seem all over the place with this. I could stick with redirection, but sense that
for my purposes, this is a better way to achieve what I want - if I could only get it to work.
