Proxy Pass Functionality

Post by »


I'm looking for some Kind of proxy_pass configuration, as example I have only one external URL, but do have multiple subsites. I like to "Forward" those subsites to different internal URLs: -> -> ->

is there any way doing this with cahcheguard?

Thanks and Regards

Dear Fredy

CacheGuard does not support the configuration you requested because such a configuration requires that Web applications be written in respect of some constraints (usage of relative links for instance).

Please keep in mind that CG is a generic reverse proxy with some constraints that help avoiding complex issues while remaining compatible with all Web application servers and specific applications.

I suggest that you use the following configuration instead (if possible): -> <ip-address-1> -> <ip-address-2> -> <ip-address-3>

Where <ip-address-?> could be real or virtual IP addresses on the backend Web servers. Then you can use virtual hosts on backend Web servers to get the required configuration.
