Webmin and Apache

I am currently running Apache and Webmin.  The webmin docs say that I can make webmin accessible via an Apache virtual host (like webmin.mydomain.com) by using mod_proxy.

However, I cannot seem to find mod_proxy.  Not even at modules.apache.org

It goes on to say that I should add the following to my httpd.conf file:
<VirtualHost _default_>
ServerName webmin.yourdomain.com
ProxyPass / http://localhost:10000/
ProxyPassReverse / http://localhost:10000/
</VirtualHost>

I am already running several other virtual hosts with apache.  Should this be changed?

Thanks

You need to load proxy module(s) in httpd.conf

For apache 1.3:
LoadModule proxy_module /usr/lib/apache/1.3/libproxy.so (or something similar)

Doc: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/mod/mod_proxy.html


For apache 2:
LoadModule proxy_module modules/mod_proxy.so
LoadModule proxy_http_module modules/mod_proxy_http.so  <-- in apache2 loadin proxy_module isn't enough.

Doc: http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/mod/mod_proxy.html

Right.  But I do not have mod_proxy.so on my box.  I have mod_proxy.pl in a few places, but no mod_proxy.so

I am running 1.3.

Just for fun, I tried putting the orginial snippet in my httpd.conf, but unsuprisingly, it rejected the line with ProxyPass as an unrecognized command.

Where can I download mod_proxy.so?

Thanks.

Check what i wrote at 1.3
I'm using libproxy.so on my apache so check this file is exist or not on your modules library...

Just did a locate on libproxy.so and got nothing.  The link provided has doc on mod_proxy, but no download link.

Since I am running webmin, it has a graphical interface to check supported modules vs. installed modules.  Listed mod_proxy as supported, but not installed.  Double checked the DSO section of httpd.conf, but it was empty.

The only mod_proxy on the box is mod_proxy.pl.  Upon closer inspection, it appears to be related to what I need, but I am too much of a newbie to know for certain.  It starts:

# mod_proxy.pl
# Editors for proxy directives

sub mod_proxy_directives
{
local $rv;
$rv = [ [ 'ProxyRequests', 0, 13, 'virtual', undef, 11 ],
        [ 'ProxyRemote', 1, 13, 'virtual', undef, 7 ],
        [ 'ProxyPass', 1, 10, 'virtual', undef, 0 ],
        [ 'ProxyPassReverse', 1, 10, 'virtual', 1.306, 0 ],
        [ 'ProxyBlock', 1, 13, 'virtual', 1.2, 9 ],
        [ 'NoProxy', 1, 13, 'virtual', 1.3, 5 ],
....

If I execute this file, will I get a mod_proxy.so perhaps?

After much closer inspection, it seems that this mod_proxy.pl is what webmin would use to create a graphic configuration interface for altering mod_proxy.  Except mod_proxy is not installed.

So forget everything I said about mod_proxy.pl, and back to square one.

Not having that module, how can I get it?
0
 
mrielfCommented:
Mod_Proxy is part of core apache server, you can't find it on modules.apache.org.
Download apache binary package, and extract module from there (bindist/libexec/libproxy.so)
and copy it to your module directory.

Sorry I haven't experience with Qmail.

WarriorPoet42Author Commented:
Okay, I got the binary, got a boatload of .so s that I guess I didn't have before.

So this should be the last question.

What is my module directory?  I don't seem to have one.  I'd just wipe and install 2.0, but it took me forever to get things to even appear to work, and I am not sure I could do it again. :$

Assuming that I am not using /any/ modules (is that even possible?), can I just create the directory, or do I need to edit some of my config files to check that directory?

The reason I am confused here is locate of mod_rewrite (which I KNOW is in) gives me nothing. . .

Is there any LoadModule directive in your httpd.conf file?
If not, then check Included files.

There are no LoadModule directives in my httpd.conf file.

This must be frustrating:  What are Included files?  A locate gave me nothing.

mrielfCommented:
Find Iclude directives in httpd.conf

example:
Include /etc/apache/modules.conf

then check /etc/apache/modules.conf for LoadModules directives...

##
## httpd.conf -- Apache HTTP server configuration file
##

#
# Based upon the NCSA server configuration files originally by Rob McCool.
#
# This is the main Apache server configuration file.  It contains the
# configuration directives that give the server its instructions.
# See <URL:http://www.apache.org/docs/> for detailed information about
# the directives.
#
# Do NOT simply read the instructions in here without understanding
# what they do.  They're here only as hints or reminders.  If you are unsure
# consult the online docs. You have been warned.  
#
# After this file is processed, the server will look for and process
# /usr/local/apache/conf/srm.conf and then /usr/local/apache/conf/access.conf
# unless you have overridden these with ResourceConfig and/or
# AccessConfig directives here.
#
# The configuration directives are grouped into three basic sections:
#  1. Directives that control the operation of the Apache server process as a
#     whole (the 'global environment').
#  2. Directives that define the parameters of the 'main' or 'default' server,
#     which responds to requests that aren't handled by a virtual host.
#     These directives also provide default values for the settings
#     of all virtual hosts.
#  3. Settings for virtual hosts, which allow Web requests to be sent to
#     different IP addresses or hostnames and have them handled by the
#     same Apache server process.
#
# Configuration and logfile names: If the filenames you specify for many
# of the server's control files begin with "/" (or "drive:/" for Win32), the
# server will use that explicit path.  If the filenames do *not* begin
# with "/", the value of ServerRoot is prepended -- so "logs/foo.log"
# with ServerRoot set to "/usr/local/apache" will be interpreted by the
# server as "/usr/local/apache/logs/foo.log".
#

### Section 1: Global Environment
#
# The directives in this section affect the overall operation of Apache,
# such as the number of concurrent requests it can handle or where it
# can find its configuration files.
#

#
# ServerType is either inetd, or standalone.  Inetd mode is only supported on
# Unix platforms.
#
ServerType standalone

#
# ServerRoot: The top of the directory tree under which the server's
# configuration, error, and log files are kept.
#
# NOTE!  If you intend to place this on an NFS (or otherwise network)
# mounted filesystem then please read the LockFile documentation
# (available at <URL:http://www.apache.org/docs/mod/core.html#lockfile>);
# you will save yourself a lot of trouble.
#
ServerRoot "/usr/local/apache"

#
# The LockFile directive sets the path to the lockfile used when Apache
# is compiled with either USE_FCNTL_SERIALIZED_ACCEPT or
# USE_FLOCK_SERIALIZED_ACCEPT. This directive should normally be left at
# its default value. The main reason for changing it is if the logs
# directory is NFS mounted, since the lockfile MUST BE STORED ON A LOCAL
# DISK. The PID of the main server process is automatically appended to
# the filename.
#
#LockFile /usr/local/apache/logs/httpd.lock

#
# PidFile: The file in which the server should record its process
# identification number when it starts.
#
PidFile /usr/local/apache/logs/httpd.pid

#
# ScoreBoardFile: File used to store internal server process information.
# Not all architectures require this.  But if yours does (you'll know because
# this file will be  created when you run Apache) then you *must* ensure that
# no two invocations of Apache share the same scoreboard file.
#
ScoreBoardFile /usr/local/apache/logs/httpd.scoreboard

#
# In the standard configuration, the server will process httpd.conf (this
# file, specified by the -f command line option), srm.conf, and access.conf
# in that order.  The latter two files are now distributed empty, as it is
# recommended that all directives be kept in a single file for simplicity.  
# The commented-out values below are the built-in defaults.  You can have the
# server ignore these files altogether by using "/dev/null" (for Unix) or
# "nul" (for Win32) for the arguments to the directives.
#
#ResourceConfig /usr/local/apache/conf/srm.conf
#AccessConfig /usr/local/apache/conf/access.conf

#
# Timeout: The number of seconds before receives and sends time out.
#
TimeOut 300

#
# KeepAlive: Whether or not to allow persistent connections (more than
# one request per connection). Set to "Off" to deactivate.
#
KeepAlive on

#
# MaxKeepAliveRequests: The maximum number of requests to allow
# during a persistent connection. Set to 0 to allow an unlimited amount.
# We recommend you leave this number high, for maximum performance.
#
MaxKeepAliveRequests 100

#
# KeepAliveTimeout: Number of seconds to wait for the next request from the
# same client on the same connection.
#
KeepAliveTimeout 15

#
# Server-pool size regulation.  Rather than making you guess how many
# server processes you need, Apache dynamically adapts to the load it
# sees --- that is, it tries to maintain enough server processes to
# handle the current load, plus a few spare servers to handle transient
# load spikes (e.g., multiple simultaneous requests from a single
# Netscape browser).
#
# It does this by periodically checking how many servers are waiting
# for a request.  If there are fewer than MinSpareServers, it creates
# a new spare.  If there are more than MaxSpareServers, some of the
# spares die off.  The default values are probably OK for most sites.
#
MinSpareServers 5
MaxSpareServers 10

#
# Number of servers to start initially --- should be a reasonable ballpark
# figure.
#
StartServers 5

#
# Limit on total number of servers running, i.e., limit on the number
# of clients who can simultaneously connect --- if this limit is ever
# reached, clients will be LOCKED OUT, so it should NOT BE SET TOO LOW.
# It is intended mainly as a brake to keep a runaway server from taking
# the system with it as it spirals down...
#
MaxClients 150

#
# MaxRequestsPerChild: the number of requests each child process is
# allowed to process before the child dies.  The child will exit so
# as to avoid problems after prolonged use when Apache (and maybe the
# libraries it uses) leak memory or other resources.  On most systems, this
# isn't really needed, but a few (such as Solaris) do have notable leaks
# in the libraries. For these platforms, set to something like 10000
# or so; a setting of 0 means unlimited.
#
# NOTE: This value does not include keepalive requests after the initial
#       request per connection. For example, if a child process handles
#       an initial request and 10 subsequent "keptalive" requests, it
#       would only count as 1 request towards this limit.
#
MaxRequestsPerChild 0

#
# Listen: Allows you to bind Apache to specific IP addresses and/or
# ports, instead of the default. See also the <VirtualHost>
# directive.
#
#Listen 3000
#Listen 12.34.56.78:80

#
# BindAddress: You can support virtual hosts with this option. This directive
# is used to tell the server which IP address to listen to. It can either
# contain "*", an IP address, or a fully qualified Internet domain name.
# See also the <VirtualHost> and Listen directives.
#
#BindAddress *

#
# Dynamic Shared Object (DSO) Support
#
# To be able to use the functionality of a module which was built as a DSO you
# have to place corresponding `LoadModule' lines at this location so the
# directives contained in it are actually available _before_ they are used.
# Please read the file http://httpd.apache.org/docs/dso.html for more
# details about the DSO mechanism and run `httpd -l' for the list of already
# built-in (statically linked and thus always available) modules in your httpd
# binary.
#
# Note: The order in which modules are loaded is important.  Don't change
# the order below without expert advice.
#
# Example:
# LoadModule foo_module libexec/mod_foo.so

#
# ExtendedStatus controls whether Apache will generate "full" status
# information (ExtendedStatus On) or just basic information (ExtendedStatus
# Off) when the "server-status" handler is called. The default is Off.
#
#ExtendedStatus On

### Section 2: 'Main' server configuration
#
# The directives in this section set up the values used by the 'main'
# server, which responds to any requests that aren't handled by a
# <VirtualHost> definition.  These values also provide defaults for
# any <VirtualHost> containers you may define later in the file.
#
# All of these directives may appear inside <VirtualHost> containers,
# in which case these default settings will be overridden for the
# virtual host being defined.
#

#
# If your ServerType directive (set earlier in the 'Global Environment'
# section) is set to "inetd", the next few directives don't have any
# effect since their settings are defined by the inetd configuration.
# Skip ahead to the ServerAdmin directive.
#

#
# Port: The port to which the standalone server listens. For
# ports < 1023, you will need httpd to be run as root initially.
#
Port 80

#
# If you wish httpd to run as a different user or group, you must run
# httpd as root initially and it will switch.  
#
# User/Group: The name (or #number) of the user/group to run httpd as.
#  . On SCO (ODT 3) use "User nouser" and "Group nogroup".
#  . On HPUX you may not be able to use shared memory as nobody, and the
#    suggested workaround is to create a user www and use that user.
#  NOTE that some kernels refuse to setgid(Group) or semctl(IPC_SET)
#  when the value of (unsigned)Group is above 60000;
#  don't use Group "#-1" on these systems!
#
User nobody
Group nobody

#
# ServerAdmin: Your address, where problems with the server should be
# e-mailed.  This address appears on some server-generated pages, such
# as error documents.
#
ServerAdmin root@!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.com

#
# ServerName allows you to set a host name which is sent back to clients for
# your server if it's different than the one the program would get (i.e., use
# "www" instead of the host's real name).
#
# Note: You cannot just invent host names and hope they work. The name you
# define here must be a valid DNS name for your host. If you don't understand
# this, ask your network administrator.
# If your host doesn't have a registered DNS name, enter its IP address here.
# You will have to access it by its address (e.g., http://123.45.67.89/)
# anyway, and this will make redirections work in a sensible way.
#
# 127.0.0.1 is the TCP/IP local loop-back address, often named localhost. Your
# machine always knows itself by this address. If you use Apache strictly for
# local testing and development, you may use 127.0.0.1 as the server name.
#

#
# DocumentRoot: The directory out of which you will serve your
# documents. By default, all requests are taken from this directory, but
# symbolic links and aliases may be used to point to other locations.
#
DocumentRoot "/usr/local/apache/htdocs"

#
# Each directory to which Apache has access, can be configured with respect
# to which services and features are allowed and/or disabled in that
# directory (and its subdirectories).
#
# First, we configure the "default" to be a very restrictive set of
# permissions.

#
#CacheNegotiatedDocs

#
# UseCanonicalName:  (new for 1.3)  With this setting turned on, whenever
# Apache needs to construct a self-referencing URL (a URL that refers back
# to the server the response is coming from) it will use ServerName and
# Port to form a "canonical" name.  With this setting off, Apache will
# use the hostname:port that the client supplied, when possible.  This
# also affects SERVER_NAME and SERVER_PORT in CGI scripts.
#

#
# DefaultType is the default MIME type the server will use for a document
# if it cannot otherwise determine one, such as from filename extensions.
# If your server contains mostly text or HTML documents, "text/plain" is

# or images, you may want to use "application/octet-stream" instead to
# keep browsers from trying to display binary files as though they are
# text.
#

#
# The mod_mime_magic module allows the server to use various hints from the

# directive tells the module where the hint definitions are located.
# mod_mime_magic is not part of the default server (you have to add
# it yourself with a LoadModule [see the DSO paragraph in the 'Global
# Environment' section], or recompile the server and include mod_mime_magic
# as part of the configuration), so it's enclosed in an <IfModule> container.

#
# ErrorLog: The location of the error log file.
# If you do not specify an ErrorLog directive within a <VirtualHost>

### Section 3: Virtual Hosts
#
# VirtualHost: If you want to maintain multiple domains/hostnames on your
# machine you can setup VirtualHost containers for them. Most configurations
# use only name-based virtual hosts so the server doesn't need to worry about
# IP addresses. This is indicated by the asterisks in the directives below.
#
# Please see the documentation at <URL:http://www.apache.org/docs/vhosts/>
# for further details before you try to setup virtual hosts.
#
# You may use the command line option '-S' to verify your virtual host
# configuration.

#
# Use name-based virtual hosting.
#
#NameVirtualHost *:80

#
# VirtualHost example:
# Almost any Apache directive may go into a VirtualHost container.
# The first VirtualHost section is used for requests without a known
# server name.
#
#<VirtualHost *:80>
#    ServerAdmin webmaster@dummy-host.example.com
#    DocumentRoot /www/docs/dummy-host.example.com
#    ServerName dummy-host.example.com
#    ErrorLog logs/dummy-host.example.com-error_log
#    CustomLog logs/dummy-host.example.com-access_log common

# Dynamic Shared Object (DSO) Support
#
# To be able to use the functionality of a module which was built as a DSO you
# have to place corresponding `LoadModule' lines at this location so the
# directives contained in it are actually available _before_ they are used.
# Please read the file http://httpd.apache.org/docs/dso.html for more
# details about the DSO mechanism and run `httpd -l' for the list of already
# built-in (statically linked and thus always available) modules in your httpd
# binary.
#
# Note: The order in which modules are loaded is important.  Don't change
# the order below without expert advice.
#
# Example:
# LoadModule foo_module libexec/mod_foo.so


Maybe all modules are statically linked in your apache binary, and there isn't any dinamically modules present...

If Proxy module isn't linked statically then create a directory. Place libproxy.so there and add this to httpd.conf:

LoadModule proxy_module /created_directory/libproxy.so

My god . . .

The error I got when I tried to use the proxy commands without mod_proxy being installed . . .

It now gives me that error when I try to load the mod_proxy module.

Syntax error on line 205 of /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf:
Invalid command 'LoadModule', perhaps mis-spelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration

Now how on earth do I load a module to allow the loading of modules?

I'm not a NetBSD guru, but might be in the build you using LoadMudule is disabled...
Get apache source, and build your own apache binary. Enable proxy module there...

sigh

I recompiled, and now when I try to load my page, I get a message that index.php is of type application/x-httpd-php, and my browser doesn't know what to do with this file.  I didn't get this message before.  What happened?

On a side note, the module_proxy now works (yay!), but the inserted code does not.

Basically, if I type mydomain.com:8201  I get webmin
I want to be able to type webmin.mydomain.com to get the same thing

The code given me by webmin was

<VirtualHost !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!>
ServerName webmin.mydomain.com
ProxyPass / http://mydomain.com:8201/
ProxyPassReverse / http://mydomain.com:8201/
</VirtualHost>

Will this work?

mrielfCommented:
Your server displays PHP source instead running it? Then PHP module isn't compiled into your apache build.
If apache now supports LoadModule directive then get PHP package and php4_module (libphp4.so)

I don't know exactly, but VirtualHost doesn't need DocumentRoot Directive?

Periwinkle,

While the question was technically answered, the recompilation of Apache just to add in LoadModule resulted in a couple dozen other compiled-in modules being lost.  I spent about a week trying to figure out what all I was missing, and finally gave up and asked my admin for a re-image.  I'm not really a unix guru, and while I can function (I know the basic syntax), I feel like it should have been made a little more clear how many problems could be caused by recompilation.  I would like the question deleted.

WarriorPoet42 - Unfortunately, if the question has been actually answered by the expert, it's really only fair to the expert if you ccept their answer, even if you had difficulty in actually performing the task.  The solution posted did lead to the resolution of your problem, albeit with the intervention of your admin.
