mod_proxy_balancer on RHEL6

categories: tags: Apache tags: Linux tags: Red Hat/CentOS

Tested on RHEL 6. This is the simplest setup possible, for my own reference. I may come up with a Salt state in the future.

Reference :

/etc/httpd/conf.d/balancer-manager.conf : `

<Location /balancer-manager>

SetHandler balancer-manager

Order Deny,Allow

Deny from all

Allow from


/etc/httpd/conf.d/vhost.conf :


<VirtualHost *:80>



        <Proxy balancer://xyz_example_org>




        ProxyPass /balancer-manager !

        ProxyPass / balancer://xyz_example_org


Access the cluster through

Manager the cluster through (as we prevent the path from being ‘reverse proxied’)
