How To Set Lighttpd Proxy To Let Apache Run Cgi/perl Scripts?
Oct 24, 2008
I'm running both Apache (on port 81) and Lighttpd (port 80) on my VPS. I would like to have Apache run CGI/Perl scripts only for virtual hosts in the Lighttpd.conf. My Lighttpd.conf already has fastCGI enabled though.
somebody know is possible on some way route traffic before come to web server (apache or lighttpd)?
I want to setup lighttpd on port 80 and apache on port 81 and I want visitors to go direct to apache or lighttpd without url:81 and that must work on this way if somebody visiting url1.domain.com that go to lighttpd on port 80 and if somebody visiting url2.domain.com that go to apache on port 81 and something must route it before lighttpd and apache (and get/post must work), is this possible on some way?
I know that lighttpd and apache can do it but I don`t need it on that way!
Until recently, it seemed like everything I read about a server indicated that Apache was king. I have never read anything that has given me any reason not to use Apache.
However, about a year ago when I discovered Django, I discovered Lighttpd. From everything I've been able to read, Lighttpd seems to be a better web server, but still don't know very much at all about Lighttpd.
I'm fairly comfortable with Apache, although I've never cared much for it. I have a feeling that I'll like Lighttpd quite a bit more from the very little that I do know about it. I'm wondering if I should even consider switching.
For one, it seems that everyone knows how to work with Apache and Lighttpd seems to be far less common. Apache also seems to be much more established which leads me to believe that it's a safer choice. Nonetheless, I still really want to give Lighttpd a shot. And, judging from what I've seen about Django and Lighttpd, Lighttpd seems to be a better choice when working with Django.
What do you think? Should I stick with Apache since I already know how to use it? Is Lighttpd worth the time to learn or is Apache just too good?
I wanted to know what do you prefer as server apache or lighttpd , though I am running lighttpd and have no issue except that there is too much work for mod rewrite and it effects search engine, so I was thinking to use apache instaed of it will it be possible to install apache over lighttpd or will I have to go for fresh install.
For a year now I've been running my server with Lighttpd. It's worked out well so far, but now that I have a new box I'm reconsidering.
Lighttpd does not support .htaccess files which is a bit of a pain, and doesn't have the same support by apps like Apache does. Given that I get very little traffic to my box (it sits idle most of the time) I am considering Apache.
How is security between Apache and Lighttpd? I know Apache has things like mod_security and mod_evasive, but I've never really checked how Lighttpd compared.
We've been thinking about writing our own hosting control panel for our own "tight" hosting setup, so that can alter the panel just to our needs without relying on updates from anybody else.
To read new configurations in Lighttpd or Apache, as far as I know, requires the software to be restarted (for example service apache restart). Are there any negative effects of this, I'm assuming that whilst being restarted there is a small amount of time during which the software is "down" and websites can't be accessed during that period (probably <1 second). Am I correct?
What is the best way to reload configurations into these http servers without service interruption? I notice that DirectAdmin seems to just restart Apache on any function that alters the configuration file - for example adding a new user.
index-file.names = ( "index.php", "index.html", "index.htm", "default.htm" ) and my httpd.conf
Code: ProxyRequests Off ProxyPreserveHost On ProxyPass /lighttpd http://0.0.0.0:81/ ProxyPassReverse / http://0.0.0.0:81/ Now when I created a folder on my server's httpdocs /lighttpd/
everything runs smooth so I got the lighty to work for me.
Okay now that i figure it works I wanted to run one of my subdomain on lighty so that I can reduce the load on the server. Does anyone know how I can setup one of my subdomain to open with lighttpd and keep everything else on apache?
Has anyone done this or currently running this setup? to try it with my directadmin server first but havent found very good documentation or howtos. Ive looked the last week or so and havent really found anything helpful. So if anyone is running such a setup Id like to know how you did it and how much better if any it is.
I'm using the isapi rewrite module for iis 6 which uses the exact same syntax as mod_rewrite in apache. I'm not very well versed in apache and need getting this to work asap. Basically I have a directory in our website: URL....
I need to forward this to an IP address, for example to this address:220.127.116.11/folder.While keeping the original URL (www.xyz.edu/folder). I'm unsure of the apache syntax for this.
Running programs named Perl with Heavy CPU usage, with the ownership of user apache.
We found the problem on Fedora 3 and Fedora 6.
In our case, it was the result of a Trojan activity.
Check the cron jobs of user apache crontab -u apache -e */1 * * * * perl /tmp/.tmp/tmpfile delete the cronjob entry. Also delete the file /tmp/.tmp/tmpfile also added "apache" to the file /etc/cron.deny
I want to setup a failover approach in which if after a particular timeout say 10secs the load shifts to some other website like Refer.com | The world. The timeout should be in Proxy Pass and if timeout occurs it shifts to Refer.com | The world
I m trying to setup a reverse proxy with several site that will redirect the request into several internal server.I wanted to do that with several VirtualHost (like shown below). Unfortunatly whatever I type on my browser testsupport.xxxx.com or support2.xxxx.com I m redirected at the first of the config file (in the exemple http://10.253.12.41/.Is it the ServerName key that will redirect to the right proxypass ?
I have a setup where Apache connects to a F5 load balancer which in turn balances between two jboss app servers.
Apache using mod_proxy -> F5 (hardware load balancer) -> 2 jboss application server
It uses jsessionid. I sometimes get 500 errors for the post methods. I think the request goes to the incorrect jboss server because of the F5 load balancer. Everything works just right when I shutdown one of the jboss app servers.
I'm trying to do a setup of alfresco.It has two basic sites. [URL]. Both use kerberos authentication. Alfresco has SSO and share has not. Both sites are on the same server (its just one site but different subs)
I want to put this behind a reverse proxy to eliminate the servername:port combination.
When I put it in a normal config with ajp everything works fine for the share website. I can login without problems. Not so however for the alfresco website. I get a browser login request (not the alfresco one) when i enter my credentials he asks them again and again and then he ends on the regular login page of alfresco at which point everything works. The username I entered is displayed at this point. When I do not enter my credentials correct I do not reach the page.
If I remove the SSO from the alfresco website everything is normal (but i have to login)
I have apache 2.2 on Linux going through the a firewall to a backend sharepoint server. My sharepoint application has anonymous and authenticated traffic. This works fine most of the time but we randomly get (104)Connection reset by peer: proxy: error reading status line from remote server. I was able to fix this by adding *SetEnv force-proxy-request-1.0 1 *SetEnv proxy-nokeepalive 1 *RequestHeader unset Expect early But after I added this I was then no longer able to log in. I would receive a *HTTP/1.1" 401 my understanding is KeepAlive is required for NTLM to work so making sure I can stop the connection resets which are unacceptable and still allow the authenticated users to log in.
I'm currently in the process of configuring a red hat linux server as a proxy server for a number of back end web servers. I set up reverse proxying to hide the web server url's, but I've run into a problem with the second web server, because some of the directory structures are identical on both servers.
I am having a little trouble getting a reverse proxy redirect to work. I have a Linux server running Apache2. I have installed SABnzbd+, Sickbeard, Couchpotato & Headphones onto this device. I want to access SABnzbd+, Sickbeard, Couchpotato & Headphones from the outside world (via a DYNDNS name).
I know that I could just forward the ports through the router, but I don't want all the extra ports opened. I was told that I can have Apache to do a revers proxy, but I can't get it to work. I basically want to be able to do type myname.dyndns.org/sickbeard instead of typing in myname.dyndns.org:8081.
I'm trying to fix a problem with open proxy on my website. It's running ubuntu & apache2. I also run pfsense for a firewall with snort. I have a SSL for the website, so I have regular port 80 redirect to https.
At first I did notice right away when I checked & saw this happen that proxy was turned on. So I got that turned off.
My firewall is still allowing these bad IPs to port 80. I would like to figure out what I could turn on the firewall or snort to stop those connections in addition to what needs fixing in apache. I've read the solution is to make the redirects go to a 403 error page.
I also tried adding a mod_security rule but ended up blocking all people from website, though I may have accidentally turned some other rules on too.
There are a few different problems it looks like.
First - It looks like they're trying to connect to my HTTPS then redirect to an ad through my domain name? Second - It looks like they're still trying to use my website for open proxy but directly accessing ib.adnxs.com through my port 80. My logs indicate I'm redirecting to a 301 page.
Have run through a bunch of threads on mod_proxy race conditions, possible causes, and potential solutions.
What is the status? Is there a fix for this, maybe in 2.4.7?
On 2.4.3 in production we literally have 10K errors in the past 2 months along the lines of:
Code : AH00898: Error reading from remote server returned by...
Application server (JVM webapp) issues no errors at the time of mod_proxy error occurring. It seems then that mod_proxy is sporadically broken, which is horrible for end users accessing an otherwise rock solid production application.
