Weblogic Console / Plugin redirect requests from Domain name To IP address (Doc ID 1260011.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 05, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Weblogic Server - Version: 10.3.3 and later   [Release: and later ]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

The Apache HTTP Server Plug-In for WLS is configured as per the Oracle documentation here, so that the HTTP server will receive all the incoming request and forward to the WLS

For some requests to the WLS console, right after saving (pending) changes, the console attempts to forward to the IP address of the machine where the WLS is installed instead of the hostname of the machine where the HTTP server is installed, and reports the following error :

"The connection has timed out" ie "problem loading the page"
