Subject: Re: [users@httpd] Apache Proxy configuration question

Did you try using SSLProxyEngine On ?

Normally, you do not need to use SSL when proxying, as SSL is used to secure contents, and
if you install SSL certificate on Apache which is proxing you do not need to have SSL on backend

Hi Jeremy,
If you add a / infront of the SSL URL,then does it work?

Hi All,
I had a question about Apache with SSL.Basically came across this issue when configuring a
reverse proxy with Apache.

Do you know if there is some limitation on the number of ProxyPass and ProxPassReverse entries
that you can do when it comes to an SSL virtual host?

Consider the following scenario:1. I have a website called http://public1 and have a public
SSL cert for that site.2. I have two internal servers with different urls containing self
signed SSL certs for both of them.

3. Internal urls are https://internal1:81 and https://internal2:824. I would like to have
https://public1 proxy to https://internal1:81 and https://public1/demo proxy to https://internal2:82


 Proxypass /demo https://internal2:82 ProxyPassReverse /demo https://internal2:82 

 ProxyPass / https://internal1:81

 ProxyPassReverse / https://internal1:81

The problem:It seems that the /demo entries do not work (the first two entries). However these
rules work for non SSL virtual hosts. The problem is when I work with SSL virtual hosts.

ANY help / tips or limitations with the above would be helpful.

Thank you
