Is there any information (user guides, books) on using the apache server
as a reverse proxy?
I'm using Apache's latest version (1.3.14) and it seems I hit a wall someone
has met before me. Basically the problem is as follows: - I have a reverse
proxy that works just fine thanks to ProxyPass and ProxyPassReverse. Let's
call him "rproxy". He "hides" a http server, I'll call "server". - when I ask
for authentication on a resource located on "server" (using either Location
or Directory in the httpd.conf file of "rproxy"), "rproxy" sends a PROXY auth
to the client. I would expect a HTTP auth request... The user authentifies,
the "proxy" validates the credentials against the local database, and then
FORWARDS the auth request to the "server".
Problem is that I want the PROXY to authenticate the user, not the back-end
server. Is there a way to configure the "proxy" system so that the auth
request is not forwarded to the server?
I've tried <Directory>, <Location (dirname)>, <Location (urlname)> with very
Has someone managed to make this work?
Thanks in advance
