using apache as a proxy


During the phase of installing a new mantis on a Solaris V20Z in solaris 10 I had
to deploy some applications on a different server in different solaris 10 zones.

mod_proxy modules was used to redirect the request to the different zones.

«Location /test »
ProxyPass http://new.location.com/location
ProxyPassReverse http://new.location.com/location
«/Location»

This allows the access directly from the new server, but get’s the data
from a different host.

The server was installed with Solaris 10 U4 and the coolstack from Sun, which provides Apache, MySQL and PHP5 as an optimized package for Solaris 10 x86 and SPARC.
