Description Vadim Grinco 2011-08-10 15:15:31 UTC
Description of problem:

I have the following directives in my httpd config:
ProxyPass /some-app https://asd.com
ProxyPassReverse /some-app https://asd.com

The application sends a location header to https://asd.com/home when accessed:
$ curl -ki https://asd.com  2>&1| grep Location
Location: https://asd.com/home/

But when I try to access it through proxy, the the /some-app module is not being added to the uri:
$ curl -ki https://proxy.asd.com/some-app  2>&1| grep Location
Location: https://proxy.asd.com/home/

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Tried on:
httpd-2.2.3-45.el5_6.1
httpd-2.2.15-9.el6.x86_64


Expected results:
Location header to be rewritten to: https://proxy.asd.com/some-app/home/

Please note that this issue persists in latest httpd available in 5.6 but is fixed in 2.2.16-1ubuntu3.1.

Regards,
