Description Binand Sethumadhavan 2008-07-09 01:33:58 EDT
Description of problem:
ProxyPassMatch directive is implemented in Apache 2.2.5. Please see if it is
possible to backport this directive to RHEL5's 2.2.3 Apache.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Edit httpd.conf to include a ProxyPassMatch directive (eg: ProxyPassMatch
^(/.*\.jsp)$ ajp://localhost:8009$1)
2. Reload httpd (sevice httpd reload)
3. Error logged.
Actual results:

Syntax error on line 25 of /etc/httpd/conf.d/proxy_ajp.conf:
Invalid command 'ProxyPassMatch', perhaps misspelled or defined by a module not
included in the server configuration

Expected results:

Normal reload of Apache

Additional info:

The configuration directive is needed for connecting Apache to Tomcat. There is
a workaround using mod_rewrite rules, though (but that requires a different
module to be loaded into Apache)
Comment 1 Joe Orton 2008-07-09 04:43:49 EDT
Thanks for the report.  Yes, this is already proposed for inclusion in 5.3.
