Subject [users@httpd] ProxyReverse perverse behavior
Date Wed, 14 Mar 2007 18:02:36 GMT

I am using Apache's ProxyPass/ProxyPassReverse features to deliver
content that actually resides on an IIS server, but now "looks like" it
comes directly from the Apache server.  However, I am getting
non-uniform behavior. (Apache 1.3.33 on HP-UX 11.11)

In httpd.conf:

ProxyPass        /org/sa_of_eng
ProxyPassReverse /org/sa_of_eng

ProxyPass        /org/zorro
ProxyPassReverse /org/zorro

Here's the problem:

Enter in Address Bar                        Result Displayed in Address Bar
--------------------------------------      ------------------------------------

I haven't done a thorough test, but it appears that the reverse proxy
translation in combination with "adding the trailing slash" does not
like finding underscores in the URL.  I have at least one other URL with
'_' in it exhibiting the same behavior; all the rest of my proxied sites
have only letters in their names.

Does anyone know if this can be fixed?  Am I not going to be able to
allow my customers to omit the tralinig slash, or not be able to allow
my content owners to use underscores in their web names?
