redirect based on internal or external IP using Apache

0 votes
758 views

I am new to apache, so forgive me if this is a beginner questions.

I am trying to redirect request to apache based on the IP address. Depending on where the request originates from, the request will either have a external or internal IP address. External will be redirected to the external site, internal will be redirected to the internal site.

Request to www.site.com will be evaluated based on the IP address. Then redirected to either www.site.com/external or www.site.com/internal . I am able to accomplish this with the following.

 RewriteCond %{REMOTE_ADDR} ^1.1.1.1 
 RewriteRule ^(.*)$ www.site.com/internal [R=301,L] 
 RewriteCond %{REMOTE_ADDR} ^2.2.2.2 
 RewriteRule ^(.*)$ www.site.com/external [R=301,L] 

The problem I am running into is that this is in a loop. Every request will be evaluated and redirected. If possible, I need a way to redirect once, then let other request (www.site.com/external/a/b/c or www.site.com/internal/x/y/z )not be evaluated and then redirected

The way I would handle this is adding a second rewritecond to each stanza, looking at REQUEST_URI to make sure that the target path is not there, eg

RewriteCond %{REMOTE_ADDR} ^1.1.1.1  
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/internal  
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ www.site.com/internal [R=301,L]

We have a small cluster of machines serving a wiki website. Search engine robots are allowed in to index the website and these create a lot of traffic that can affect the service. I would like to redirect all http requests from these robots to one of the machines in the cluster.

Any ideas for how to do this ?

We have integrated apache web server with our internal LDAP and we have requirement to provision role based access to the folders in the docroot. We have earlier used SVN and we were using AuthzSVNAccessFile to meet this requirement. Contents of the file will look like this.

[groups]
users = usera
admins = usera, userb
[/]
users = r

[/folderA]
admins= r

Now we are looking for something similar with the apache directives, is it possible? if not, can you please give us an alternate?

I have tried "Require ", it doesn’t solve our requirement.

I am using CentOS 6.0 with Apache 2.2.15, and set up Apache with virtual host. The SSI works fine on the first VH, but ssi on the other virtual hosts does not work. I got the following message in the error log:

mod_include: Options +Includes (or IncludesNoExec) wasnt set, INCLUDES filter removed

Does anyone know how to resolve this problem?
