Apache Reverse Proxy with Abap Web query

Hi to all

We are trying to configure apache 2 to work as a reverse proxy with web abap Netweaver installation.

From inside the network the web query is fine.

Running the query with the reverse proxy we have only the html code in the browser. All the scripts and css are not present.

We checked some messages inside the forum and we have tried a lot of stuff without success.

We use always linux (Fedora, Ubuntu with xampp or apache only) plus the html module or the publisher from

Our installation is like this the reverse proxy in the dmz and the netweaver to the inside off coarse, and we don't have the same domain name, i don't know if this is important.

Any help/idea is valuable.

Thank you

You need to add these ditectives at least :

ProxyPreserveHost on

RewriteEngine on

RewriteRule ^/(sap\(.*)$1 [P,L]

The rewrite rule is to manage the "URM mangling" that is specific to SAP abap.

Check SDN, there is a lot of documentation there.
