I've been trying to accomplish a goal of using Apache as a reverse proxy to translate HTTP to HTTPS as well as using mod_rewrite to inject a query string.
The reverse proxy works if tested without the rewrite. When adding the rewrite however, Apache appears to be looping the query string and appending it multiple times. This actually repeats and spawns a max number of worker threads until I force stop the service.
When I force stop Apache, I get following from my browser:
Proxy Error The proxy server received an invalid response from an upstream server. The proxy server could not handle the request GET /api/uuid. Reason: Error reading from remote server
However, the upstream server never appears to see this GET request come through.
My VirtualHost is as follows:
<VirtualHost *:80> RewriteEngine On RewriteRule ^/api/uuid /api/uuid?var=testing [P,QSA] SSLProxyEngine On SSLProxyVerify none SSLProxyCheckPeerCN off SSLProxyCheckPeerName off SSLProxyCheckPeerExpire off ProxyPreserveHost On ProxyPass / https://192.168.47.108:8443 ProxyPassReverse / https://192.168.47.108:8443 </VirtualHost>
Original GET request
