Reverse Proxy Issues

The IT support for my client are having issues with a reverse proxy for WebDirect in FileMaker Server 14 running on OSX 10.9.5. below is the information they are giving me, I am not ion site and have no remote access. I have substituted 1.2.3.4 for the real Ip address and ‘theURL’ for the desired url.

 

To explain a little of the situation. There are 2 apache services running on the FileMaker Server, one using port 80 has a php form which will be replaced by this WebDirect form, currently on 8080.

 

The apache server running the reverse proxy is 10.11.2 (server), not patched to 6 due to know issue

 

 

This is the config of the reverse proxy:

 

ProxyPreserveHost On

ProxyPassReverse /onlinebrief http://1.2.3.4:80       Ignore this, this is for the current online brief

ProxyPass /onlinebrief http://1.2.3.4:80                    Ignore this, this is for the current online brief

ProxyPassReverse /onlinebrieftest http://1.2.3.4:8080/fmi/webd/#OnLineBrief/

ProxyPass /onlinebrieftest http://1.2.3.4:8080/fmi/webd/#OnLineBrief/

 

Had config with both # and no # in URL

 

The last two lines are for the test online brief

 

What we get back when browsing to the URL http://theURL/onlinebrieftest is either:

 

Error: “Failed to load the bootstrap javascript: ./../../VAADIN/vaadinBootstrap.js”

 

Or

 

Webdirect unable to locate the URL, unable to re-replicate this error to get full message.

 

 

 

The URL http://1.2.3.4:8080/fmi/webd/#OnLineBrief work okay

 

 

 

 

Can anyone help?

 

 

Thanks

 

 

Tim
