Subject [users@httpd] Configuring redirects httpd behind a TLS-terminating proxy
Date Mon, 23 Jan 2017 22:07:13 GMT

All,

I've got an EC2 instance behind a load balancer where TLS is being
terminated. I've arranged for two separate httpd (2.4.25)
VirtualHosts: one for the secure connections (proxied from the lb) and
another for the non-secure connections.

I have a Redirect directive that isn't behaving as I'd like it to behave
:

RedirectMatch permanent ^/$    /site/

I have the same redirect in both VirtualHosts. The redirect itself
works, but it doesn't preserve the secure-protocol when I'm using the
secure VirtualHost.

I have this directives to attempt to set the HTTPS environment variable:

    # Handle ELB requests; maintain client information
    SetEnvIf X-Forwarded-Proto "https" HTTPS=On
    SetEnvIf X-Forwarded-Port "(.*)" JK_LOCAL_PORT=$1

I can confirm that ELB is in fact sending the "X-Forwarded-Proto:
https" header to my httpd instance.

I can also see that the HTTPS environment variable is in fact being
set to "On" when I make a request.

I'm expecting httpd to redirect a request from
"https://www.example.com/" to "https://www.example.com/site/" but
instead I'm getting redirected to "http://www.example.com/site/".

Can anyone see anything wrong with my configuration? Or do I have a
misunderstanding of how RedirectMatch will built its relative URLs?
I'd expect the redirects to be protocol-relative, but even though
HTTPS=On, the request from the LB is actually using HTTP and not
HTTPS. Am I not able to override the protocol by setting the HTTPS
environment variable?

Do I have to build an absolute redirect using other environment variable
s?
