I have a Java application running in tomcat, in front of which I have an Apache http server as a reverse proxy.

However, the proxy is removing all xmlns data from the html tag, which breaks all the Facebook's FBML which is never parsed.

My current config is as follows:

ProxyRequests off

ProxyPassReverseCookiePath /cas /

<Location />
        ProxyPass http://localhost:8080/cas
        ProxyPassReverse http://localhost:8080/cas

ProxyHTMLURLMap /cas /
SetOutputFilter proxy-html

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

Thanks in advance.

Just use below line in configuration file.

xml2StartParse      element     HTML

This will stops the modification done in your html file.

From what I've read, the SetOutputFilter proxy-html has been superseded by ProxyHTMLEnable On

That's on mod-proxy 3.1, we are using 3.0 – Johnco Nov 29 '10 at 16:14
