Description Wil Tan 2008-04-01 10:58:29 UTC
I have the following config:

<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerName alpha.xri.net
    ProxyRequests Off
    ProxyPass / http://localhost:8003/ nocanon
    ProxyPassReverse / http://localhost:8003/
    ErrorLog logs/alphaxriproxy-error_log
    CustomLog "|/usr/sbin/cronolog /usr/local/apache2/logs/alphaxriproxy.log.%Y-%m-%d" combined

When a request comes in to the local server:


the mapped remote server URL became:


This seems to happen when "nocanon" is turned on.

This is related to bug 41798.

Proof-of-concept that fixes the issue

This seems to be due to the code handling the "nocanon" option using r->unparsed_uri instead of r->uri. The r->unparsed_uri contains the query string while r->uri does not.

This patch excludes the query portion of r->unparsed_uri when constructing the remote server URL.
