Subject [users@httpd] httpd 2.0 -> 2.2: ProxyPass behaviour?
Date Tue, 15 Jul 2008 11:12:40 GMT

being into migrating one of our machines from Ubuntu 6.06/apache 2.0 to
Ubuntu 8.04/apache 2.2, I have hit some kind of issue in my
configuration regarding our reverse proxy environment. In our 2.0 setup,
we used to expose resources hosted on a backend system like this

<VirtualHost *:80>

 ServerName foo.domain.tld

 ProxyPass /target
 ProxyPassReverse /target


having ProxyRequests turned off and most of the mod_proxy configuration
left at default settings working fine. Having this moved to our 2.2
installation, in the most simple replication of the original
configuration (VirtualHost settings the same, reduced the rest to just
the setup outlined above), even local access bails out unsuccessfully,
having a 403 returned to the browser, dumping the following line to

[Tue Jul 15 13:07:37 2008] [error] [client] client denied
by server configuration: proxy:

What has changed in between 2.0 and 2.2's mod_proxy configuration that
could possibly cause this? From looking at our configuration so far, I
can't tell what might be responsible for that... Can anyone enlighten me

TIA and best regards,
