SH4 reverse proxy https to https return error 500
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:43:23 EDT
Description of Problem:
Client (browser) shows error 500 (internal server error) when accessing a SH4
reverse proxy with https with a SSL (https) connection to a back end server.
SH4 access log shows the error code to be 136416647 instead of 500.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. In a default SH4 httpd.conf file, go to the end of the SSL Virtual Host
container and add the following directives:
ProxyPass /testhttps/ https://somevalid.website/
ProxyPassReverse /testhttps/ https://somevalid.website/
2. Save the httpd.conf file
3. Restart SH4
4. Test using a browser to access https://yourwebsite/testhttps/
5. You will get "500 - Internal Server Error" displayed on your browser and
the number 136416647 in your access_log where the error code should be.
See item 5. above.
The correct web page.
This is occuring because the EAPI patch from mod_ssl 2.8.7 hasn't applied
correctly to the 1.3.22 mod_proxy. I've re-diffed the patch and am now testing.
This will be fixed in the next SH4 build.
