The mod_wl_ohs.conf file is configured to forward request to WLS server port
9005. However it was noted that requests are seen forwarded to port 9001
instead, resulting in the following error.


...[ERROR:32] [OH99999] [weblogic] [client_id: xx.xx.xx.xx] [host_id: server1] [host_addr: yy.yy.yy.yy] [pid: 18210] [tid: 27] [user: root] [ecid: 0003rfcwHdf33FcxxgK6wW0004SQ000007] [rid: 0] [VirtualHost: server1:0] <0003rfcwHdf33FcxxgK6wW0004SQ000007> *******Exception type [CONNECTION_REFUSED] (apr_socket_connect call failed with error=146, host=yy.yy.yy.yy, port=9001 ) raised at line 1692 of URL.cpp, referer  https://server1/login.html


The issue reproduces with both SSL and NON-SSL configurations. 




The following configuration was added to the mod_wl_ohs.conf file.
