Subject [users@httpd] Order of Proxy matching
Date Mon, 25 May 2009 07:01:21 GMT
Hi,

Can anyone advise of the order in which <Proxy> statements matching the
same URL are matched?

I am using SetEnvIf to set a variable that is saved later in the
access_log.  Sometimes there is a more specific match and a less
specific match for the same URL, e.g.:

<Proxy http://server1.example.com/*>
	SetEnvIf Server_Addr . VAR=first
      Allow from all
</Proxy>

<Proxy http://*.example.com/*>
	SetEnvIf Server_Addr . VAR=second
      Allow from all
</Proxy>

My observation is that the matches are done in reverse order of
appearance in the configuration, i.e. in this example, a request to
http://server.example.com/ will match the http://*.example.com/* rule
and the variable will be set to "second".  Is it generally correct that
matches are in reverse order of appearance in the configuration?

Thanks,

Evan
