Comments

  • Can more domains be natched to the same siteaccess?

    It should be clarified whether a configuration like this:
    HostMatchMapItems[]
    HostMatchMapItems[]=front.example.com;corporate_user
    HostMatchMapItems[]=www.example.com;corporate_user
    


    i.e. accessing the same siteaccess from many domain names is allowed/feasible or not. This is very useful when waiting for DNS propagation but I had weird behavior from doing that, so I don't know if this operation is disallowed or if I made a mistake elsewhere.
  • Take care about using port 80 in your urls: itr will not be matched!

    <i>HostMatchMapItems[]= hostname1; siteaccess1</i>
    will not match http://hostname1:80
    You will need to add a second rule for that:
    <i>HostMatchMapItems[]= hostname1:80; siteaccess1</i>

    This might happen not only when entering the url in the browser, but also when using webservices or other http clients that always put the port in the 'Host:' header in the http request.
