[Deploying Sakai] Proxying through Apache

Thanks, David! I actually am hoping to use mod_proxy--sorry, should have mentioned that! It really has been difficult to figure out how to set it up properly. (It's helpful to have the instructions on mod_jk, however. Thank you!)

I would like to configure a 443 login and then bounce it back to 80 for everything else. Is anyone presently configuring their logins that way?

Hi Paul,

We do this using Apache mod_jk, I know others who do it with mod_proxy.

You need:

1) A jk connector for your tomcat:

    <!-- Define an AJP 1.3 Connector on port 8009 -->

    <Connector port="8009" connectionTimeout="630000" backlog="500"

               maxThreads="800" enableLookups="false"
redirectPort="8443" protocol="AJP/1.3" URIEncoding="UTF-8" />

2) apache mod_jk installed and loaded in your apache module conf

3) In you ssl vhost define your jk mount point

 jkMount /* loadbalancer

4) (Optional) You can also unmount some points if youd rather have
apache handle them (we do this for css etc)

JkUnMount /library/skin/* loadbalancer

        JkUnMount /library/content/* loadbalancer

        JkUnMount /library/js/* loadbalancer

        JkUnMount /library/icon/* loadbalancer

        JkUnMount /library/image/* loadbalancer

        JkUnMount /library/jscalendar/* loadbalancer

        JkUnMount /library/schedule/* loadbalancer

Hope this helps!

  Does anyone have any advice on configuring Sakai with Apache? I have had a hard time getting the resources I've found online to work for me.

Ultimately, what I'd like to do is run Apache as a front-end for Sakai on the same machine and have users log in via 443. Is this how most of you are currently set up?

Thank you!
