Subject [users@httpd] RE: Problems with ProxyPassReverseCookieDomain
Date Mon, 15 Oct 2007 08:11:10 GMT
An "" Cookie will be sent to and

Questions for troubleshooting:
Is receiving the Cookie?  (Should be yes.)
Is sending the Cookie when proxying to  Is receiving the Cookie?  (Both
should be yes, but mod_proxy breaks in every other release.  This
2.2.1 changes state this issue was fixed.)
Does the server software on check the Domain field on
incoming Cookies and ignore Cookies from parent domains?  (Would mean
overengineering. If the Cookie arrives, use it.)

When you write "parameters", do you mean HTTP Headers, QueryString
parameters, POST parameters, part of the URL, or something else?

The parameters issue may require mod_rewrite.  Ttry this:
RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^/site/(.*)$$1 [P]

I seem to have a problem / misunderstanding regarding the use of the
ProxyPassReverseCookieDomain directive on 2.2.4 on Windows.

I have running 2.2.4. Within the httpd.conf file, I
have a number of redirect directive statements that send a user, based
on the URL, eg. to etc. This
all works fine so that the user arrives on the www1 box and there is a
cookie correctly set with name

It now transpires that I need to use ProxyPass to pass the parameters
coming in on the request to onto - as
redirect doesn't send these initial parameters across.

So, my httpd.conf file (on now looks like:

ProxyPass /site1
ProxyPassReverse /site1

But nothing seems to be happening. When I access, there is a cookie correctly created (with the
right contents etc), however, it is named simply, ie.
there is no www. nor www1. prefixing - this breaks subsequent
processing on the box because there is no cookie
named accordingly.

What am I doing wrong ? Do I need anything else ? Or am I being plain stupid ?
