Subject Re: [users@httpd] sharing data between two different apache modules
Date Fri, 29 May 2009 07:05:01 GMT
Hmm. ProxyPass do not let one append a query string and what I want will not
be achievable with mod_proxy.
The other way round is using mod_rewrite, but somehow I am not able to get
the translation happening The below configuration is giving me error. Forum
please advice
<Location /protected>
 AuthType ECOERP::EcoErpAuthLogin
 AuthName ECOERP
 PerlAuthenHandler ECOERP::EcoErpAuthLogin->authenticate
 PerlAuthzHandler ECOERP::EcoErpAuthLogin->authorize
 require valid-user
 RewriteEngine ON
 RewriteRule /protected http://localhost:9999 [P]
</Location>

How do I read the query string?
I want all URL in the form http://example.com/protected to proxy to
http://localhost:9999/parse.pl?username=<from the login form>&password=<from
the login form>

Please help!!!
