ERA Server ApacheHTTPproxy installation


Recommended Posts

I am currently running ERA server version 6. I've been trying to set up the ApacheHTTPproxy to distribute ESET updates over the LAN.

 

I've followed the steps in the following link:

hxxp://kb.eset.com/esetkb/index?page=content&id=SOLN3637

 

Everything works well up till the step to modify the httpd.conf file to add some lines at the end. I just copy paste the information from the website and try to restart the Apache HTTP Proxy service but it will not start.

 

Navigate to C:\Program Files\ApacheHttpProxy\conf, locate the httpd.conf file and open it using a text editor such as Notepad.

 

At the bottom of the .conf file, add the following lines:

 

ServerRoot "C:/Program Files/ApacheHttpProxy"

DocumentRoot "C:/Program Files/ApacheHttpProxy/htdocs"> AP

Options Indexes FollowSymLinks

AllowOverride None

Require all granted

CacheRoot "C:/Program Files/ApacheHttpProxy/cache"

 

 

If I use the "original" httpd.conf file, the service starts fine.

 

Can someone please help me out?

 

Regards

Hi,

 

I had the same issue, various problems with the code snippet supplied and the service would not start without commenting/removing parts but the article has now been amended to include document tags and should work without any issue.

Hi Ironikx,

It looks like you saw an older version of that document. We have updated the changes that should be made to the file. Please add these lines instead:
 

ServerRoot "C:/Program Files/ApacheHttpProxy"

DocumentRoot "C:\Program Files\ApacheHttpProxy/htdocs"
<Directory "C:\Program Files\Apache HTTP Proxy/htdocs">

Options Indexes FollowSymLinks

AllowOverride None

Require all granted

</Directory>

CacheRoot "C:/Program Files/ApacheHttpProxy/cache"
