Subject [users@httpd] Server redirects not working as expected
Date Mon, 12 Nov 2007 06:49:17 GMT
Hi all,

My Configuration consists of an Apache 2.0 front-end and Tomcat 5.5.20 
backend, I use mod_proxy with mod_rewrite to reverse proxy. We have 
configured 'sticky sessions' using a rewrite rule, this configuration is 
soon to be replaced though with Apache 2.2 and the mod_proxy_balancer.

The problem we are having is with redirects, for example after a form 
posts and an explicit redirect is invoked, such as  sendRedirect(URL) 
(from HttpServletResponse), the URL returned points to the backend 
Tomcat server instead of the front-end Apache server, despite the URL 
being a relative path.  In other words: redirect to MyApp/HomePage.html  
should be : https://ApacheFrontEnd/myApp/HomePage.html but instead 
returns: http://TomcatBackEnd:8080/MyApp/HomePage.html

I have tested the cookie and it is set correctly, as too is the JVMRoute 
parameter in Tomcat. This occurs notably only with server redirects... 
all other links work okay.

Any pointers would be appreciated.
