    Using HTTP/HTTPS instead of AJP

    Ben Schofield Novice

      Given the requirement to use SSL between an Apache HTTP server and JBoss AS 5.1, how do you configure mod_cluster to use HTTP/HTTPS instead of AJP?

      I have installed the appropriate mod_proxy_http.so module.

      #load mod_cluster modules
      LoadModule proxy_module modules/mod_proxy.so
      #LoadModule proxy_ajp_module modules/mod_proxy_ajp.so
      LoadModule proxy_http_module modules/mod_proxy_http.so
      LoadModule slotmem_module modules/mod_slotmem.so
      LoadModule manager_module modules/mod_manager.so
      LoadModule proxy_cluster_module modules/mod_proxy_cluster.so
      LoadModule advertise_module modules/mod_advertise.so

      The http server and JBoss are communicating fine and mod_cluster-manager shows:

      Node standard (ajp://
      Enable Contexts Disable Contexts
      Balancer: mycluster,Domain: ,Flushpackets: Off,Flushwait: 10000,Ping: 10000000,Smax: 76,Ttl: 60000000,Elected: 0,Read: 0,Transferred: 0,Connected: 0,Load: 94
      Virtual Host 1:
      /jmx-console, Status: ENABLED Disable

      You can see the URL to my "standard" node is using the AJP protocol which I don't want. This of course fails without the mod_proxy_ajp.so module installed. What is the configuration to change this to HTTP or HTTPS?
