Redirect / https://backend/
Redirect / https://sitename/

Hi, all

I have a Apache reverse proxy server (v2.2.17). There is a web server with
backend https server. When internet users access the sit, they use
http://sitename and then get redirected to https://sitename. The
configuration is in the httpd-vhosts.conf

<Virtualhost sitename:80>
       ServerName      sitename
       Redirect /      https://sitename/dir1/dir2/login

In my httpd-ssl.conf, for the same site I have:

<Virtualhost sitename:443>
       ServerName      sitename
       SSLEngine on
       SSLProxyEngine on
       Proxypass /             https://backend/
       ProxyPassReverse /      https://backend/

Now I get a new request that when the internet users use
http://sitename, users should be able to access the site too.

I modified the virtual server in httpd-vhosts.conf:

<Virtualhost sitename:80>
       ServerName      sitename
       Redirect /      https://backend/

In httpd-ssl.conf:

<Virtualhost sitename:443>
       ServerName sitename
       SSLEngine on
       SSLProxyEngine on
       Proxypass /             https://backend/ dir1/dir2/login
       ProxyPassReverse /      https://backend/ dir1/dir2/login

When I accessed the site through either http or https, I saw in error log:

GET /   HTTP/1.1" 302 178
GET /dir1/dir2/login HTTP/1.1" 404 -

On my IE browser, when I accessed the site through http and https, I saw the
same message:

The error (HTTP 404 Not Found) was able to connect to the website, but the
page you wanted was not found.
