I was trying to use the mod_proxy_balance module of apache to setup a loadbalancer for 2 webservers in the background. I thought I successfully did. Here's what happened:

  1. My proxy is in abcd.edu. I enabled abcd.edu/test to be redirected to 2 webservers abc.edu/PHP and acb.edu/PHP.

  2. Now if I enter abcd.edu/test in my address bar, I am able to reach those webservers. But I cannot access any page beyond it. eg If I enter abcd.edu/test/star.jpg . It says Internal server error. It is misconfigured. If I enter abc.edu/PHP/star.jpg , I am able to access it.

I followed this tutorial to setup the mod_proxy_balance.

Can you please let me know what exactly I am doing wrong?

Config files or it didn't happen. –  Janne Pikkarainen Jun 9 '11 at 6:37
In the client side, My program gives Connection Time out. The load balancer error logs give : do_ypcall: clnt_call: RPC: unable to send;errno = Operation not permitted –  sethu Jun 9 '11 at 15:57
Can you post the relevant portion of your httpd.conf configuration that contains your proxy directives? –  mahnsc Jun 11 '11 at 21:23
