Howto rewrite HTTP response headers with Apache?

Post by Shreyas Saranga » Fri, 14 Jan 2000 04:00:00

I'm using Stronghold/ Apache as a proxy server and need to modify
"Set-Cookie:" in the Response header.

Does Stronghold/Apache allow for the  rewrite of HTTP *Response* headers?
If so, how?

The documentation seems to suggest that mod_rewrite is used only for HTTP
(including headers ) originating from a browser.

1. Apache 2.0 howto write my own http-header


  Can anyone help me with the following problem:

    We have this Netscape Fasttrack 3.02 module which must be ported to Apache
2.0 (for i assume obvious reasons). Now i got most of it working but:
this module writes the content it generates to the client itself and thus
also writes it's own http-header.

        Is there a way (using the C-api, but if anyone has a Perl-example it is
of course also welcome!)  to prevent Apache from writing the header?
        I know it is possible to modify the headers (by setting the values in the
'headers_out') , but that would mean a large rewrite of the module and if
i understand it correct, 'ap_send_http_header(r)' is oly included in 2.0
to maintain compatibility with 1.3?

        Tanx in advance,
