Comment 1 Christopher McCrory 2002-06-23 16:06:07 EDT
After security update:

==> error_log <==
[Sun Jun 23 13:01:02 2002] [error] mod_ssl: Init: (myserver.pricegrabber.com:80)
Unable to create SSL Proxy context (OpenSSL library error follows)
[Sun Jun 23 13:01:02 2002] [error] OpenSSL:

When both SSL and proxy are used together

You can use one or the other, but not both

also FYI, with php 4.2.1 , mod_SSL must be loaded before mod_PHP

Comment 2 Graham Leggett 2002-07-19 07:44:52 EDT
mod_proxy is broken in v1.3.23 and v1.3.24.

The solution is for Redhat to either release apache v1.3.26 officially, or to
apply the proxy fixes committed between .23 and .26 to whatever version Redhat
wants to release.
Comment 3 Emergence By Design 2002-08-27 15:56:58 EDT
The bug in mod_proxy is infuriating, this was clearly the fault of the apache
team at the time, but I have gone back to the security patched 1.3.22 version
for RH7.2 on my RH7.3 box.
Comment 4 Graham Leggett 2002-09-03 03:57:46 EDT
Currently the bugs in mod_proxy have long since been fixed in v1.3.26, which was
released on 18 June. From that time it became the responsibility of Redhat to
ensure the relevant fixes were released to their users. As at 3 September (2 1/2
months later) nothing has been done, in fact the status on this bug is still set
to NEW.

When is Redhat going to do something about this? It is a real pain.
Comment 5 Need Real Name 2002-09-28 02:45:02 EDT
Gah, I second the previous commentor.  This makes RedHat's current Apache
package  useless as a front-end server to a mod_perl backend, which isn't all
that uncommon a use for Apache.
Comment 6 Christopher McCrory 2002-09-29 21:38:59 EDT
I'd be nice to get current apache , mod_ssl , and php updates for RH 7.x and RH
AS 2.1 .  I plan on getting RH AS , but not keeping up with apache 1.3 would be
a deal breaker.  :(
Comment 7 Joe Orton 2003-01-16 13:00:41 EST
This should be fixed in the upgrade to Apache 1.3.27 in the latest 
security errata:

Comment 8 Christopher McCrory 2003-01-16 13:05:15 EST
Yep, it was.

I had almost forgotten about this as I had "rolled my own" updated rpms
