Subject Patch to fix mod_webapp under Apache 1.3 in SSL mode
Date Thu, 03 Jan 2002 01:40:35 GMT
I ran into a confusing little problem with mod_webapp under Debian's Apache
SSL package.

Apache has used the apache_mod_ssl whieh doesn't set all of the variables
that the 'mod_ssl' package does.

This causes a problem on Warp connections where the tomcat server cannot
actually determine the correct
security of a page requested through mod_webapp.

Essentially, additional variables need to be pulled in using ap_add_cgi_vars
and ap_add_common_vars, then
delay assignment of the schem variable to the request packet until a true
determination of SSL mode (via the HTTPS variable) can be made.

I didn't have a chance to look at the 2.0 version as I don't currently have
Apache 2.0 installed.  Enjoy.
