192.168.0.1/example How?


I'm setting up a reverse proxy. We don't have a domain name for our Linux LAMP server. I want the reverse proxy to host multiple servers behind it and be able to reach each one using the same ip address. I would like to use a naming scheme similar to the following: 192.168.0.1/example and 192.168.0.1/example2

Not sure how to go about doing this. Any help would be great!

Total noob here. Have been playing with this for a while!

Might you know any websites that might be of help. I think I'm having trouble with the format.

the format of /etc/hosts? it's just "ip.add.re.ss hostname"

but that's actually not going to help you at all, bit of a bum steer I think. Sounds like you want to find out about mod_proxy:

ProxyPass /example1 http://192.168.10.1
ProxyPass /example2 http://192.168.10.2

in your httpd.conf

httpd.conf is empty, have have been doing my configurations in /etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default

I can proxy to one site, but I don't know what to do about the rest. Right now it points to one ip address

Thanks!

See the response using mod_proxy.

To explain it a bit more the way it works is this.

You have an IP, lets call it 1.1.1.1 associated with your main apache server, you then have several other servers/sites on internal ips, say 2.2.2.2 and 3.3.3.3 for another one.

You setup your site so that you can request them as such:

1.1.1.1/site2
1.1.1.1/site3

You will then go into your apache configuration file, traditionally httpd.conf, and enable a 'ProxyPass' to get those to the right location.

You set:

ProxyPass /site2 http://2.2.2.2
Proxypass /site3 http://3.3.3.3


Now your main Apache server sees an incoming request for 1.1.1.1/site2, it reads it's configuration file and sees that any request on /site2 should be forwarded, or proxied, to http://2.2.2.2.

You also want to verify mod_proxy is loaded into apache:

Code:
apachectl -t -D DUMP_MODULES | grep -i proxy

I think he might be talking about using meta refresh head tags which is something that should be avoided. This can easily be done with mod_proxy.

mod_proxy will be there if apache is proeprly installed. Just use the ProxyPass directives as I provided.

I can't test this at the moment due to the network where I work being down. This is what I have configured so far:

/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default

<VirtualHost *:80>
