we are running an IBM WAS and an Apache 2.4 in front of it. It works well, but at the moment it seems that most benefits of Apache can't be used, as all the traffic is routed directly and exclusively to IBM WAS.
... LoadModule was_ap24_module [..]/WebSphere/Plugins/bin/64bits/mod_was_ap24_http.so WebSpherePluginConfig [..]/WebSphere/Plugins/config/rbi_ihs_m/backend_plugin-cfg.xml ... LoadModule ssl_module etc/httpd/modules/mod_ssl.so <IfModule mod_ssl.c> Listen 1443 <VirtualHost *:1443> SSLEngine on ...[noting IBM WAS relevant] </VirtualHost> </IfModule> ...
We would like to:
Serve some pages by Apache from file system and not through IBM WAS. E.g. a mix of native Apache and IBM WAS. Is this possible? We tried with a specific but it seems that the WAS module is getting all the traffic and the <Location /not_was/*> is ignored.
Serve some WAS Pages with Basic Auth. E.g using <Location /was_protected/*> and asking first for user + password and only then forwarding to IBM WAS. Is this possible?
Many thanks in advance!
