Subject [users@httpd] Error page server in Apache ?
Date Fri, 04 Nov 2016 08:01:08 GMT
Hi All,

 We currently have an old legacy Java application running under Sun Webservers that does the
following.  It's purpose is to display an error message if a particular webserver is down.
  The request is forwarded to the application from the load balancer when the load balancer
detects the webserver is down.

1) Receives a request 

2) Looks at the request URL (i.e.,, )

3) Display a file from a directory based on the URL, i.e. /usr/local/apache2/htdocs/error/

Is it possible to implement the above in Apache 2.4 using rewrite rules ?
