Website access without initial www

+1 vote

I am using Apache2.2.22 on a Debian7 server. Hosting multiple websites, but have reduced it to just one for now to try to figure out this problem.

So, if I go to: the website shows up. HOWEVER, if I go to just: from outside our company network, I get the error "Forbidden. You don't have permission to access / on this server."

From inside the company network, however, it works fine. Here is the only file in /etc/apache2/sites-enabled

NameVirtualHost *:80

 DocumentRoot /var/www/mysite

 AllowOverride None

Do requests to the non-www site show up in the access or error log? (run tail -n 0 -f /var/log/apache2/*.log and access the bare domain.)
There might be something useful there if you compare it with a good request. Additionally, I recommend changing your CustomLog to combined_vh (I think that is what it is) so that the virtualhostname is in the log too.

Looks like a different server is answering the www one and the non www one.

I am working on an app with Java and Struts2.
I fetch all data from my DB to an Object(eg.XXX) List at once while Tomcat(7) is coming up. Then according to user selection, I am trying to get data from the same List by doing Ajax call. But it is failing and getting an empty list. I don't want to use session.
Can I use and global object list for this?? An Example will be more helpful.

The Barracuda load balancer has feature which enables it to recover a broken web connection. Let me explain the scenario; suppose that there exist two web servers behind the Barracuda load balancer and the user is downloading a file from one of the back-end web servers. Now, suppose that the active web server goes down, the Barracuda load balancer is capable of continuing the download from where it was broken using the other web server. Is it possible to achieve such a behaviour using mod_proxy_balancer? Are there exist any open source alternatives which can provide the same capability? If not, is anybody aware of any roadmap to achieve the same functionality using open source tools? Considering mod_proxy_balancer, what are the required steps to follow in order to add such a functionality?
