  • I tried setting up something like this last week. I was doing it first with PHP before I attempted it with mod_perl. It worked fine UNTIL I enabled mod_gzip in the front end server. AFter that, URLs like test.php would be passed through fine, but if you add a query string (like test.php?ABC=DEF), the front end server would give a 404 and not pass the request on. Any idea what's up with that?

    And the previous poster is right -- you use mod_rewrite's RewriteRule instead of ProxyPass. That lets you keep the same DocumentRoot for both frontend and backend httpds. The frontend handles graphics, html, and txt files and it passes the rest to the backend.
