Issues with WAS SP13 and SSL with APACHE Reverse Proxy

0 Kudos

When we use APACHE as a reverse proxy with WebAS SP13 we get errors when using SSL. Has anyone encountered this.

When we redirect port 80 to was on port 50000 it works fine but not when we redirect 443 traffic to port 50001.

The url works fine when we do not use APACHE as a reverse proxy.I

The browser shows the following error:

Proxy Error 502 "The proxy server received an invalid

response from an upstream server.

The proxy server could not handle the request GET /hep Reason:

Error Reading from remote server".

I do not receive an error in WAS logs.

My Apache has the following error:

[proxy: error

reading status line from remote server

proxy: Error

reading from remote server returned by /

[Wed Apr 05 11:27:56 2006] [debug] proxy_util.c(1769): proxy: HTTPS:

has released connection for ..."

Any assistance is appreciated.

Look at the ssl-config example

BrowserMatch ".MSIE." \

nokeepalive ssl-unclean-shutdown

Worked for us!

Steve, I know that it has been a few months on this one, but did you get an answer to this?

Increase your Apache logging to DEBUG. Confirm that SSL works to both Apache and to AS-Java, and further confirm that the Apache server will trust the certificate of the Java server.
