Apache Reverse Proxy authentication
 
Hey,

I have an apache 2.0.55 server running reverse proxy for a single web server. The web server requires a username and password be entered (http authentication) and I don't want the users accessing the site VIA the proxy to have to enter the password. Only people directly accessing the site should be prompted to enter it.

Httpd.conf extract

ProxyPassReverse / http://serveraddress/solutions/
ProxyPass / http://serveraddress/solutions/

For the moment I am using allow/deny to control access to the server from certain IPs, but it would be easier to use usernames and passwords.

Secondly, how do I make sure caching is on incase the actual web server goes down?

Thanks,

David
