Apache AJP reverse proxy

With apache it is possible to have a reverse proxy with AJP instead of http. With the use of mod_proxy_ajp it is very simple to set up and faster than just plain http protocol

<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerName jenkins
    DocumentRoot "/mario/Apache22/htdocs"
    <Directory "/mario/Apache22/htdocs">
        Options Indexes Includes FollowSymLinks
        AllowOverride All
        Order Allow,Deny
        Allow from all
        Deny from none
    </Directory>
    <Location />
        ProxyPass ajp://localhost:8009/
        ProxyPassReverse ajp://localhost:8009/
    </Location>

    SetEnv vhostname jenkins
    Header add X-Server-Name %{vhostname}e
</virtualhost>

Than start the backend server, in this case only with AJP and listen only on localhost

java -jar jenkins.war --httpPort=-1 --ajp13ListenAddress=127.0.0.1

reverse proxy for utorrent part 2

In my last post about utorrent (µtorrent) I was frustrated that I wasn’t able to change the url from /gui/ to /tor/
Woot! In apache 2.3 which will be apache 2.4 and I think it will be released in early 2011 the proxy module is much better and there it works to have a different URL :-) Even as ALPHA or BETA version the new apache rocks a lot and runs stable. In condition with mod_fcgid it is real cool technology e.g. running PHP separated form apache that allows to run different PHP version of the server in vhosts or directories. Also running a non thread safe PHP version. Speed! IPv6 would be fine, but the offered patches are not applied to trunk :-/There is an annoying bug in mod_fcgid. I’m glad I found a fix for it (help from Tom Donovan and Sob).

reverse proxy for utorrent

Using the web UI for utorrent is a fine thing. But the webserver from utorrent is not secure. So it is recommend to use apache as reverse proxy. I tried to change the url, but I wasn’t successful.

Here the set up of cause inside a vhost.

LoadModule proxy_module modules/mod_proxy.so
LoadModule proxy_connect_module modules/mod_proxy_connect.so
LoadModule proxy_http_module modules/mod_proxy_http.so

ProxyPass /gui/ http://localhost/gui/
ProxyPassReverse /gui/ http://localhost/gui/
