Subject [users@httpd] hide alternate service ports using mod_proxy
Date Sun, 22 Apr 2007 14:13:16 GMT
Hmm...gmane is really taking it's time or just doesn't like me. :-)  My 
apologies in advance if this message comes twice.

Currently I have 4 separate services running for web services on one 
machine, Apache-2.2.4, Tomcat-5.5.23, and webmail and webmail admin 
(vendor provided). All are using two ports, close in proximity to the 
original. My primary goal is to remove the port numbers from the URLs, 
however, I'd also like to only have open 80 and 443 on the firewall. I 
believe this is the correct method, however, the results are not exactly 
as expected.

In httpd.conf I have:
LoadModule proxy_module modules/
LoadModule proxy_connect_module modules/
LoadModule proxy_http_module modules/


# Reverse Proxy (hide port number for other web services)
Include conf/extra/httpd-reverse-proxy.conf

I have in conf/extra/httpd-reverse-proxy.conf:
ProxyRequests Off

<Proxy *>
Order deny,allow
Allow from all

ProxyPass /webmail
ProxyPassReverse /webmail

When going to '' I get the text, but not 
the pictures.  When I add the trailing slash and it seems to work as 
expected.  As it is now, I need only 80/443 open.  However, upon logging 
in, I receive a "Not Found" error:
Not Found

The requested URL /webmail.dll was not found on this server.

Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use 
an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Apache/2.2.4 (Win32) mod_ssl/2.2.4 OpenSSL/0.9.8e PHP/5.1.6 
mod_perl/2.0.3 Perl/v5.8.8 Server at Port 80

http or https doesn't make a difference.  The 403 is probably related, 
but I am unsure.  Am I going about this in the correct way?  Remember 
that this is a separate, vendor supplied httpd of some sort, so 
integration into the main webroot is not likely possible.  Of course, 
using the or 444 works as expected.  If anyone has an 
idea, either to fix this or for another solution, It'd be much appreciated.
