Subject [users@httpd] reverse proxy with apache 1.3 and apache 2.2
Date Thu, 17 Dec 2009 12:54:47 GMT

I have to migrate a working reverse proxy from apache-ssl
1.3.33-6sarge3 to apache2 2.2.9-10+lenny6 with ssl but I encounter a
critical issue : when I try to access the website from behind a proxy,
it's working with apache 1.3 but not with apache 2.2 (without proxy,
it's working fine for both version).

The error displayed in the error.log is : [error] (104)Connection
reset by peer: proxy: prefetch request body failed to
(intra-8.lan) from a.b.c.d ()

Both server have IP address in the same subnet and have only this
virtual host enabled.

I have tried some tweak in the configuration but I'm clueless to find
any parameter correcting this behavior. Bellow is the apache-ssl 1.3
config vhost file :
<VirtualHost *>
        SSLCertificateFile    /etc/apache-ssl/ssl/ip-13.crt
        SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/apache-ssl/ssl/ip-13.key
        ProxyPass / http://intra-8.lan/
        ProxyPassReverse / http://intra-8.lan/

An here is the apache 2.2 config file :
<IfModule mod_ssl.c>
<VirtualHost xx.xx.xx.xx:443>
        SSLEngine On
        SSLCertificateFile    /etc/apache2/ssl/ip-14.crt
        SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/apache2/ssl/ip-14.key
        ProxyRequests Off
        <Proxy *>
                Order Deny,Allow
                Allow from all
        ProxyPass / http://intra-8.lan/
        ProxyPassReverse / http://intra-8.lan/

I really need to migrate this website to the new server, any idea ?
