RedHat Linux 5.2, apache 1.3.3 from RedHat rpm-package.
apache-1.3.3-1, glibc-2.0.7-29
We are using apache and ProxyPass to hide the thing that our (and our custommers) websites
have been split to several servers. ProxyPass is fine for this, except that it does not work
correctly on this architecture.
Parts of site are on Microsoft IIS server (yuck), and other parts on apache server running
on Linux
When we are using ProxyPass on apache server (1.3.4 running solaris) without any virtual-hosts
everything runs fine.
But when I tried this same thing on RedHat Linux 5.2 (apache 1.3.3) problems exist.
When client requests url from this site apache adds lots of headers to those what IIS has
generated (apache running on solaris does not add these headers)
These headers include Content-Location, which reveals information about servers (this address
is from private address-space, so it does not work from outside world)
Lynx uses this content-location header to generate URLs of links. So lynx-users are unable
to browse those pages.
This server has Name-based virtual hosts in use.
Header unset Content-Location does not fix this.
