Crystal Reports on IIS behind Apache Proxy

Posted on 2013-05-17

I have a website hosted on an IIS 6 Server which uses Crystal Reports to display reports to the user.  This is working and has been for some time.  The reports element is a seperate application is IIS.

We now wish to put an Apache 2 server in front of the IIS box.  The Apache box will host various other sites and will reverse proxy to the IIS box for that specific site.

The reverse proxying is working for most of the site, however when the reports button is clicked error below is returned (see also attached).

Configuration Error

Description: An error occurred during the processing of a configuration file required to service this request. Please review the specific error details below and modify your configuration file appropriately.

Parser Error Message: Could not load file or assembly 'CrystalDecisions.Web, Version=11.5.3700.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=692fbea5521e1304' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

When the site is accessed directly it works fine.  But when access via Apache this error occurs.

I'm a little confused as this is an IIS generated error, and I would expect to get an Apache error here.

Many thanks in anticipation!

Regards,

Ollie

I believe this is a permissions issue.  Probably the reverse proxy changes the user in some way so it doesn't have permissions to that file or directory.

WHat version of Apache?
