Subject [users@httpd] apache2 reverse proxy cgi problem
Date Wed, 11 Jul 2007 22:15:31 GMT
I am almost to the point of having my apache2 reverse proxy complete.  I am
having trouble now when the reverse proxy forwards a user from the login
page to the cgi-bin on the main server.  I get an error that is generated
from the main server:

You don't have permission to access /cgi-bin/cgi_main on this server.


Apache/1.3.26 Server at Port 80

Since the error is being generated by the main server not the proxy I'm
guessing that is where the problem lies. That server is on a vms box and
can't be touched so I have to make the reverse proxy work without any
modifications to the vms/apache.

I can go directly to the main server with a browser and all of the cgi apps
work fine.

Non-cgi content works fine. The paths seem correct. I tried to load on the proxy box and get an error 'invalid ELF header'.  I'm
hoping that when this step is resolved that the proxy will be able to proxy
the cgi programs from the main server.

I hope I've provided enough info that someone will recognize my problem.

Thanks in advance, Jeff
