Apache 2, Webmail

Wednesday, 11 August 2004 | link | tag | / Computers / Networks
Spent some time installing Apache 2.0.50-8 so that I could do the proxying for Outlook Web Access properly. It sort of worked with Apache 1.3.26 but you couldn't reply to an email or forward one without a weird access denied error.

Apache 2 allows "ProxyPreserveHost" option, which ensures that the website requested by the client is passed to the proxied machine - that way Outlook Web Access knows how to insert correct URL's into the returning data. Works ver nicely now.

I must say I'm very impressed with the modular way Apache 2's configuration works. Heaps neater than one monolithic file, especially if you have multiple sites of configs.
