[rt-users] RT2 Apache Proxy Setup

I have found the initial problem:

This message appears in your log:
[Wed Dec 12 19:42:15 2001] [error] [client] client denied by 
server configuration: proxy:http://localhost:1234/

You need this directive in your httpd.conf (well your own domain):

	<Directory proxy:https://www.balclutha.org:1234>
		Order Allow,Deny
		Allow from all

Then the next issue is not found: rt2/NoAuth/... on my local - not even the 
remote server dealing with the request...:
[Wed Dec 12 21:04:08 2001] [error] [client] File does not exist: 
[Wed Dec 12 21:05:09 2001] [error] [client] File does not exist: 
[Wed Dec 12 21:05:09 2001] [error] [client] File does not exist: 

There seems to be something naf with the way the proxy URL writing is taking 
place.  If you set the alias to rt instead of rt2 it all works:
Final configuration for proxy (Apache 1.3.19):

	<Directory proxy:https://www.balclutha.org:1234>
		Order Allow,Deny
		Allow from all
	ProxyPass 	 /rt  https://www.balclutha.org:1234

I have a much more complex issue to resolve now, and ideas are welcomed!  I 
use my own PerlFixupHandler - it is actually an authentication module, but I 
am too lazy to use it within <DIRECTORY> or <LIMIT> blocks everywhere :)

The proxy redirection does not work through my handler, I too was getting 
the original client denied by server configuration: 

I fixed this by allowing passthru if the request is a proxy:

sub handler {
    my $req_rec = shift;
    return DECLINED if $req_rec->proxyreq;

Now, I get no diagnostics in my Apache log, and the 'file not found on 
server' error on my browser.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Cheers, Alan
