I configured apache-2.4 on windows as a reverse-proxy for my internal nginx server on linux (I know! But don't ask me why!!). Almost everything works great, except:
I believe I have configured nginx to log the real ip using this header:
X-Real-IP. Reference. Now in my reverse-proxy what do I do to set this header to the IP address of the client so that it can be logged. Note that SSL is a must on apache-2.4. Currently my http-vhosts.conf has this:
<VirtualHost _default_:443> RequestHeader set X-Forwarded-Proto "https" RequestHeader set X-Forwarded-Ssl on RequestHeader set X-URL-SCHEME https ServerName www.external.gateway:443 ServerAlias external.gateway:443 ErrorLog "C:/Apache24/logs/gateway-error.log" CustomLog "C:/Apache24/logs/gateway-access.log" common # ServerAdmin email@example.com SSLEngine On SSLCertificateFile C:/Apache24/ssl/external.gateway.crt SSLCertificateKeyFile C:/Apache24/ssl/external.gateway.key <Location /> SSLRequireSSL </Location> ProxyPreserveHost On ProxyPass / http://internal.nginx:80/ ProxyPassReverse / http://internal.nginx:80/ </VirtualHost>
PS: I can probably use
X-Forwarded-For in nginx, but I need to know what to do to set that header in apache httpd.conf. Any help is appreciated.
