Subject RE: Absolute URLs on redirections
Date Sun, 05 Nov 2000 15:43:09 GMT
There was a bug in mod_jk in versions up to 3.2b5 (I think).  The effect was
that the server name was passed to tomcat instead of the hostname derived
from the HTTP request.  This meant that the wrong host was used in 302 and
304 redirections.
