Apache Reverse proxy to handle https requests

Apache Reverse proxy to handle https requests

Post by Sundar Ramaswa » Fri, 07 Sep 2001 17:04:03

 I used the following configuration for setting up a reverse proxy to
enable the site http://wwwint.teledata.maxblue.it be accessed.

local host file   wwwint.teledata.maxblue.it

the httpd.conf file
<IfModule mod_proxy.c>

SSLMutex sem
SSLRandomSeed startup builtin
SSLSessionCache dbm:/temp/datafile

SSLLog logs/SSL.log
SSLLogLevel info
SSLEngine On
SSLCertificateFile conf/ssl/jens.cert
SSLCertificateKeyFile conf/ssl/jens.key

Listen 443


ProxyRequests On
ProxyPass / https://mxbitshow.teledata.de/
ProxyPassReverse / https://mxbitshow.teledata.de/

# End of proxy directives.

However whenever i try to start my apache reverse proxy the following
error appears - "Illegal attempt to re-initialise server SSL for
server". What is this error? Also how can i set up a reverse proxy for
handling SSL requests?


1. How do you determine a HTTP vs HTTPS request for reverse proxy?

I am somewhat green in working with the Apache Server.  Here are the
directives I am using for a reverse proxy implementation.  This will
not work for an HTTPS request.  How can I modify to dynamically work
with HTTP or HTTPS requests?

        ServerName www.sam-art.org
        ErrorDocument 502       /error/maintenance.html
        DocumentRoot    "c:/program files/apache group/apache/htdocs/sam-art"
        CustomLog logs/sam-art.access.log common
        ErrorLog logs/sam-art.error.log
        <IfModule mod_proxy.c>
            CacheRoot "C:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache/proxy/sam-art"
            NoCache     *
                Redirect /index.html http://usa.samsonite.com/lansaimg/samart/

                ProxyRequests           On

                ProxyPassReverse        /lansaimg/samart        http://usa.samsonite.com/lansaimg/samart/
                ProxyPass                       /lansaimg/samart        http://usa.samsonite.com/lansaimg/samart/
