    mod_cluster 1.10 GA not working with Apache 2.2 RedirectMatch

    joaocunhalopes Newbie

      If, for example

       

      /xpto

       

      is a context managed by mod_cluster

       

      and

       

      you place a rule like the following one on Apache 2.2.17 http.conf

       

      RedirectMatch /xpto/(.*) http://www.google.com

       

      the above rule will not work (it's ignored)

       

      However, if you change the above rule to

       

      RedirectMatch /abcd/(.*) http://www.google.com

       

      and /abcd is not a context managed by mod_cluster, than the /abcd redirection to http://www.google.com will work.

       

       

       

      Obviously there is no point in redirecting a full context. It's pointless to have

       

      /xpto

       

      managed my mod_cluster

       

      and then place a rule like

       

      RedirectMatch /xpto/(.*) http://www.google.com

       

      on the Apache configuration.

       

       

      However there are ocasions where one needs to redirect part of a context.

      For example, for all english pages under /xpto

       

      RedirectMatch /xpto/(.*)/en/(.*) http://www.underconstruction.com

       

      The above redirection is usefull and I haven't found a way to make it work with mod_cluster/mod_alias (mod_alias is required for RedirectMatch).

       

      Any help is welcome.
