Subject [users@httpd] Reverse Proxy Basic Question
Date Wed, 04 Feb 2015 17:39:40 GMT


So I have been trying to better understand mod_proxy, specifically, reverse proxy on apache
2.4.10.

I have read http://httpd.apache.org/docs/current/mod/mod_proxy.html to better understand but
I still have a basic question.



In a reverse proxy directive/statement:

ProxyPass / http://something.com/something

The "/" in ProxyPass / is what I am trying to understand at the moment. So, the "/" refers
to the root of an address/domain? Like http://something.com?<http://something.com/?>
So the statement above would return http://something.com/something?

And this statement:

ProxyPass /foo http://something.com/foo

means, a user types in their browser http://somehting.com/foo and the above statement would
return http://something.com/foo?



Is this correct?
