How to use Apache 2.0 reverse proxy with Oracle Portal 10g.
The concept of running a reverse proxy is basically running an (external) webserver in front of your installation.
Usually this is done to add an additional layer of security.
This configuration allows the Portal and SSO to be accessed through a reverse proxy using a single url ServerName and Port. This note is not intended to cover all possibilities with Apache 2.0 acting reverse Proxy. It is a simple example and should be taken as this.
- The configuration described in this note requires the Portal middle tier and the infrastructure (SSO/OIDDAS) tier to run the same Oracle Application Server Core version.
- The configuration described in this note has been tested with Portal 10.1.2.x and Portal 10.1.4.x. If an other reverse proxy configuration is needed, please check the documentation below:
Oracle® Application Server Enterprise Deployment Guide 10g Release 2 (10.1.2) for Windows or UNIX
