Subject [users@httpd] Open proxy problem
Date Tue, 20 Mar 2007 11:24:46 GMT

I have a problem with the following annoying entries in my server log 
(Apache 2.0.59, SuSE Linux 2.6.8-24.24-smp).

... - - [20/Mar/2007:10:33:20 +0100] <POST HTTP/1.1> 200 491 "-" "-" "-" - - [20/Mar/2007:10:36:10 +0100] <POST HTTP/1.1> 200 482 "-" "-" "-"

I know, this seems to be a known issue, but the already discussed 
problems do not seem to solve the issue. I do have a reverse proxy 
configuration, but with ProxyRequests disabled (i.e. omitted, default is 
"Off") and the virtual host definition embracing the proxy config is 
restricted to my server IP. So, I cannot understand, why these requests 
get an HTTP OK (200).

The following lines are from my httpd.conf (virtual host and proxy 
config, other stuff omitted).

    DirectoryIndex /content/MM.po
    ProxyPass /content/ http://localhost:8002/content/
    ProxyPass /webservices/ http://localhost:8002/webservices/
    ProxyPassReverse / http://localhost:8002/
    ProxyErrorOverride On

Without the DirectoryIndex, the described requests get a 404 (but I need 
the DirectoryIndex), so it seems, that the request is just handled like 
an ordinary request for "/" (which makes is less severe), but I cannot 
understand, why this request is matched with my virtual host definition 
at all?
