Webrick Apache virtualhost hell

Added by John Reynolds over 15 years ago


I have a 7.1 version of redmine running in Ubuntu just fine, as long as I just use webrick.
I have the redmine folder in my home directory, and have the permissions set per the documentation, etc.

I have the most simple virtualhost proxy script imaginable, which used to work on InstantRails. In fact, it does seem to work OK, but I always get a permissions error. I have actually taken the entire directory and put it into /var/www/ and chmod to everything root - still nothing.
Here is the virtual host directive, in the /etc/apache2/httpd.conf file.

<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerName bugtraq
ProxyPass / http://localhost:3000/
ProxyPassReverse / http://localhost:3000

I'm at the point I'm about to go back to Windows/InstantRails because I can't get this forwarding working.
Any pointers would be appreciated.

Check out my configuration on Issue 1145 You will have to adapt it a bit but that is what I was running for several months with 0 issues.

Also check out this thread.

Also chown'ing to root might not be the best idea since your web server probably runs as something along the lines of www-data.
