Subject [users@httpd] Problem configuring proxy (forbidden error locally)
Date Wed, 09 Feb 2011 23:56:22 GMT
We are trying to use the Apache (2.0.x) that comes with Redhat to reverse-proxy. 
We have a pretty simple configuration.  Basically, we have just 1 <VirtualHost>, with
a bunch of ProxyPass/ProxyPassReverse directive-pairs, in <Location> sections, e.g.:

<Location /Foo> 
However, when we try to browse to http://<, we get a 
403/Forbidden response. 
We know from looking at the logs on that nothing is hitting it, but we have
also confirmed, by various tests that we've done, that we can connect and communicate with from the proxy machine, so the 403 is coming from the Apache proxy itself (e.g.,
we can telnet to from the proxy machine and do a "GET" manually, and get a response).
We normally build our own Apache binaries, and usually don't have a problem 
setting up a proxy, so I was wondering if there is something about using the Apache from the
RPM that needs to be configured "differently" to avoid getting this 403/Forbidden problem
with proxy inside a VirtualHost?
