HTML Proxy Configuration For Apache

Posted at

Essentially, it tries to locate "links" (URL, URI, whateva'...) in (X)HTML Documents,
kindd'a smart..

The following is a pin-point location on "Where Would \\ONE\\ Would Find A Link"... :)


# Configuration example.
#
# For detailed information about these directives see
# <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/mod/mod_proxy_html.html>
# and for mod_xml2enc see
# <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/mod/mod_xml2enc.html>
#
# First, to load the module with its prerequisites. Note: mod_xml2enc
# is not always necessary, but without it mod_proxy_html is likely to
# mangle pages in encodings other than ASCII or Unicode (utf-8).
#
# For Unix-family systems:
# LoadFile /usr/lib/libxml2.so
# LoadModule proxy_html_module modules/mod_proxy_html.so
# LoadModule xml2enc_module modules/mod_xml2enc.so
#
# For Windows (I don't know if there's a standard path for the libraries)
# LoadFile C:/path/zlib.dll
# LoadFile C:/path/iconv.dll
# LoadFile C:/path/libxml2.dll
# LoadModule proxy_html_module modules/mod_proxy_html.so
# LoadModule xml2enc_module modules/mod_xml2enc.so
#
# All knowledge of HTML links has been removed from the mod_proxy_html
# code itself, and is instead read from httpd.conf (or included file)
# at server startup. So you MUST declare it. This will normally be
# at top level, but can also be used in a <Location>.
#
# Here's the declaration for W3C HTML 4.01 and XHTML 1.0

ProxyHTMLLinks a href
ProxyHTMLLinks area href
ProxyHTMLLinks link href
ProxyHTMLLinks img src longdesc usemap
ProxyHTMLLinks object classid codebase data usemap
ProxyHTMLLinks q cite
ProxyHTMLLinks blockquote cite
ProxyHTMLLinks ins cite
ProxyHTMLLinks del cite
ProxyHTMLLinks form action
ProxyHTMLLinks input src usemap
ProxyHTMLLinks head profile
ProxyHTMLLinks base href
ProxyHTMLLinks script src for

# To support scripting events (with ProxyHTMLExtended On),
# you'll need to declare them too.

ProxyHTMLEvents onclick ondblclick onmousedown onmouseup \\
onmouseover onmousemove onmouseout onkeypress \\
onkeydown onkeyup onfocus onblur onload \\
onunload onsubmit onreset onselect onchange

# If you need to support legacy (pre-1998, aka "transitional") HTML or XHTML,
# you'll need to uncomment the following deprecated link attributes.
# Note that these are enabled in earlier mod_proxy_html versions
#
# ProxyHTMLLinks frame src longdesc
# ProxyHTMLLinks iframe src longdesc
# ProxyHTMLLinks body background
# ProxyHTMLLinks applet codebase
#
# If you're dealing with proprietary HTML variants,
# declare your own URL attributes here as required.
#
# ProxyHTMLLinks myelement myattr otherattr

# To define the URL /my-gateway/ as a gateway to an appserver with address
# http://some.app.intranet/ on a private network, after loading the
# modules and including this configuration file:
#
# ProxyRequests Off <-- this is an important security setting
# ProxyPass /my-gateway/ http://some.app.intranet/
# <Location /my-gateway/>
# ProxyPassReverse /
# ProxyHTMLEnable On
# ProxyHTMLURLMap http://some.app.intranet/ /my-gateway/
# ProxyHTMLURLMap / /my-gateway/
# </Location>

# Many (though not all) real-life setups are more complex.
