Apache ModProxy issue


Hi,

I am trying to configure apache to act as a reverse proxy for my nodejs application on a centos machine.

However, I am receiving an error in the error log saying
Code:
[Thu Nov 29 18:39:26 2012] [error] proxy: HTTP: disabled connection for (localhost)
My Virtual host configuration.
Code:
<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerAdmin xxx@xxx.xx
    ServerName xxx.com

    ProxyRequests off

    <Proxy *>
        Order deny,allow
        Allow from all
    </Proxy>

    <Location />
        ProxyPass http://localhost:3001/
        ProxyPassReverse http://localhost:3001/
    </Location>
</VirtualHost>
Please help.

Hi,

This could be a SELinux permissions problem. Disable it temporarily running
Code:
setenforce 0
and see if it works

Regards

Thanks for that. But SELinux is disabled. I got the fallowing message when running that command.
Code:
setenforce: SELinux is disabled

Are you sure that nodejs is running and listening on 127.0.0.1 and port 3001?
Also better ditch the <Location ..> and use just:
Code:
ProxyPass / http://localhost:3001/
ProxyPassReverse / http://localhost:3001/

Thanks, That solved.

I had started apache prior to the nodejs app, assuming every request would be proxied at that instance.

However, this time I started the nodejs app first and then restarted apache, and it worked.

Thanks for your help.
