Subject RE: [users@httpd] mod_rewrite & mod_proxy & %2F in URL

Good job. This suddenly rang a bell.

Check Bugzilla PR 15207 and upgrade to Apache 2.0.58 (or at least some version >= 2.0.55)

Thanks a lot for your tip but I think this will not help in our case.
I was not able to test if the switch works but your explanation gives me the hint that it
takes place in the mod_rewrite part and not in the mod_proxy part. To bring it back into mind.
I guess the modules work this way:

step 1: mod_rewrite: .../... -> ...%2F...
step 2: mod_proxy: ...%2F... -> ...%252F...
step 3: mod_proxy: ...%252F... -> ...%2F...

This assumption is based on the rewrite log of apache: - -
[07/Jun/2006:10:24:06 +0200]
[rid#8229780/initial] (1) go-ahead with proxy request proxy:

As you can see the %2F sequence is passed to mod_proxy correctly. So I need the opportunity
to switch of escaping in mod_proxy.

Nevertheless I will try it the next days.

Best regards.
