Subject [users@httpd] Reverse Proxy Configuration
Date Fri, 14 May 2010 17:16:27 GMT
I am attempting to connect the HTTP port of our mail server through
Apache so that Inet users can connect by browser to get their mail.  

If I give the full path to the mail server login screen in the config

 ProxyPass /mail

the browser hangs and I get the following log entry:

 file does not exist: [document root]/email referer .....

which is logical because the mail server on port 8080 does not share the
Apache document structure.

If I drop the path info, everything seems to work OK except that the
entry point to the email server provides options that I don't want to
offer the users.  (Like account administration!)

My full config entry that I am trying to use is:

ProxyRequests off
ProxyPass /mail/* !
ProxyPass /mail
ProxyPassReverse /mail

and I put this inside the VirtualHost container for the web site.

I think I have not interpreted the documentation properly but I don't
see where.
