Subject [users@httpd] Redirection issue in a SSL virtual hose
Date Mon, 21 Apr 2008 19:40:38 GMT
Hi,
 
I have some applications which are running under Tomcat, in a directory
called "www".  The Applications are called "Admin" and "Customer".  I use
Apache to redirect and proxy into Tomcat.
 
I want to access my application using several URLS
 
 <http://www.company.com/Admin> http://www.company.com/
 <https://www.company.com/> https://www.company.com/
 
These should point to  <https://www.company.com/Customer>
https://www.company.com/Customer as this is the default customer landing
point.  But also I need to use 
 
 <http://www.company.com/Customer> http://www.company.com/Customer
 <https://www.company.com/Customer> https://www.company.com/Customer
 
 <http://www.company.com/Admin> http://www.company.com/Admin
 <https://www.company.com/Admin> https://www.company.com/Admin
 
So I have set up my redirects for http
 
<VirtualHost 1.2.3.4:80 >
        ServerName  <http://www.company.com/> www.company.com
        RedirectMatch Permanent ^/Customer(.*)
<https://www.company.com/Customer> https://www.company.com/Customer
        RedirectMatch Permanent ^/Admin(.*)  <https://www.company.com/Admin>
https://www.company.com/Admin
        RedirectMatch Permanent ^/$  <https://www.company.com/Customer>
https://www.company.com/Customer
        RedirectMatch Permanent (.*)$  <https://www.company.com/Customer>
https://www.company.com/Customer
</VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost 1.2.3.4:443 >
        ServerName  <http://www.company.com/> www.company.com
        SSLEngine On
        SSLCertificateFile conf/ssl/www.company.com.crt
        SSLCertificateKeyFile conf/ssl/www.company.com.key
        ProxyRequests Off
        AllowCONNECT 443
 
        <Location />
                Order deny,allow
                Allow from all
                ProxyPass  <http://1.2.3.4:8080/www/>
http://1.2.3.4:8080/www/
                ProxyPassReverse  <http://1.2.3.4:8080/www/>
http://1.2.3.4:8080/www/
                ProxyPassReverse /www/
        </Location>
 
        DocumentRoot /usr/local/apache2/htdocs
</VirtualHost>

No problem here the http URLs work OK.
 
 <http://www.company.com/Admin> http://www.company.com/
 <http://www.company.com/Customer> http://www.company.com/Customer
 <http://www.company.com/Admin> http://www.company.com/Admin
 
For the https URLs, the following work OK
 
 <https://www.company.com/Customer> https://www.company.com/Customer
 <https://www.company.com/Admin> https://www.company.com/Admin
 
BUT
 
 <https://www.company.com/> https://www.company.com/ 
 
Does not work.  The request. and of course it should not, as we need 
 
 <http://1.2.3.4:8080/www/> http://1.2.3.4:8080/www/Customer
 <http://1.2.3.4:8080/www/> http://1.2.3.4:8080/www/Admin
 
For the Tomcat application
 
 <https://www.company.com/> https://www.company.com/ 
 
Results in 
 
 <http://1.2.3.4:8080/www/> http://1.2.3.4:8080/www
<http://1.2.3.4:8080/www/Customer> 

Which does not point to the Tomcat application.
 
So what I need is some form of URL rewriting or redirection.  I tried adding
a redirect into the SSL virtual host
 
<VirtualHost 1.2.3.4:443 >
        ServerName  <http://www.company.com/> www.company.com
        RedirectMatch Permanent ^/$  <https://www.company.com/Customer>
https://www.company.com/Customer
 
I also tried rewriting.  
 
        RewriteEngine on
        RewriteRule ^/$ /Customer [R,L]
 
Neither are redirecting or rewriting the request for / into /Customer
 
So my URL of / proxised to  <http://1.2.3.4:8080/www/>
http://1.2.3.4:8080/www/ and gives me an error as my application is not
there.
 
Any suggestions at how to alias/rewrite/redirect/proxy the root to /Customer
?
 
Thanks
 
john
