comment Apache reverse proxy keeps demanding basic auth credentials
Thanks - I've come to the conclusion that the basic auth directives are simply not going to work in my case, so I'll bite the bullet and look into certs, RADIUS, etc.

comment Apache reverse proxy keeps demanding basic auth credentials
Hi Shane - each request is for a different resource. Is my expectation that one authorisation will cover all matching resources incorrect?

PS. sorry, to be clear, it's demanding a 401 multiple times.

comment Apache reverse proxy keeps demanding basic auth credentials
Hi Shane - thanks for the reply. I've put Wireshark on it, and in the detail it shows a 401 being demanded and the credentials then being passed back to the server once I've typed them in. NB the client in this case is Google Chrome. J.

comment Apache URL rewriting in reverse proxy
I've made some progress on this, and have now replaced ProxyPassMatch with an equivalent using mod_rewrite, which addresses the challenge of removing jellyfish from the URLs. I'm now looking into a number of 404s that then pop up with regard to underlying elements such as Wicket components required by Karaf. Here's a code snippet: # proxy to the Jellyfish server (ignoring images) RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/(images)(.*)$ RewriteRule ^(/.*)$ http://app-server:8181/jellyfish$1 [P] ProxyPassReverse / http://app-server:8181/jellyfish/

comment Apache URL rewriting in reverse proxy
Many thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, this only resolves the straightforward proxying part of the problem. The bit I'm missing is how to remove the word "jellyfish" from visibility in the client's browser address bar, such that http://web-server silently gets proxied to http://app-server:8181/jellyfish and back again.
