Re: [epf-dev] Webapp Search

Hi Bugra,
 
We achieved a sort of workaround in the end. I amended the server.xml file within Tomcat with
 
    <Connector port="8080" protocol="HTTP/1.1"
               connectionTimeout="20000"
               redirectPort="8443"
               proxyName="host"
               proxyPort="80" />
where only the last two items are new. The relevant lines in the httpd.conf were changed to
 
ProxyPass /webapp http://localhost:8080/webapp
ProxyPassReverse /webapp http://localhost:8080/webapp
I also changed the name of the .WAR file itself to "webapp.war". The combination of these steps means that the webapp is accessible via http://host/webapp, and the search works properly. It's not pretty but it works! The only problem really with this is that with the above configuration it is no longer possible to use http://localhost to view the app directly.
 
I agree there is probably some subtlety to how the search code forms URLs that would fix this issue more fully. I'm afraid I'm not sure what it is though!
 
I should also point out that our httpd.conf also deals with static wikis using a similar virtual host setup to the one you attached. The ProxyPass pertaining to the webapp was appended to the file.
 
Hope you make some progress, and of course I'll update the community if we come up with a better solution in the future.
 
Matt

Hi Matthew,

yes, I have been experiencing the same problem and couldn't found a solution up to now... I have been told that the issue lies on the reverse proxy, but I'm still convinced that the issue actually lies in the EPF search code rather than on Apache configuration.

below are my configuration:
<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerName host
    ServerAlias host.com
    DocumentRoot /var/www/host
    ServerAdmin user@xxxxxxxx
    ErrorLog logs/host_error_log
    CustomLog logs/host_access_log custom
        ProxyPass / http://localhost:8080/host/
        ProxyPassReverse / http://host.com/
</VirtualHost>



if you should be able to find a solution I would appreciate any help.
cheers,
bugra.

Hello all,

We're experiencing a new issue, this time with the webapp version of the wiki.

As background, the webapp is being deployed on a server using Apache Tomcat, and we are using Apache HTTP to redirect traffic from http://our-site/webapp to http://localhost:8080/OurWebApp/, which is where it's actually being hosted.

The webapp deploys fine and everything appears to work until the search functionality is used. The search window opens fine, and a search can be successfully performed (i.e. you get a list of element titles and descriptions). But - the associated images and the titles of elements come with links back to http://localhost:8080/OurWebApp rather than http://our-site/webapp, and hence the page cannot be found. We have both a ProxyPass and a ProxyPassReverse in the httpd.conf script, but I think the URL is being formed independent of the Apache redirect by one of the _javascript_s (topnav.js or toc.js maybe?). I'm really not sure how to force it to change the URL.

Has anyone else encountered this problem? Is there a solution?

Many thanks
Matt
