Client denied by server configuration error in Apache.
Just in case if somebody else has a similar problem and can't get the Apache server working as expected.
I have tried to setup
proxy_mod under apache to forward HTTP traffic from AJAX Jabber client to the Bosh component running on Tigase server. It was working fine for a long time on my Gentoo server. I have recently wanted to run more tests on a separate machine and had this problem. It was a system based on the Debian distribution and the proxy_mod didn't want to work at all displaying the error message in a log file:
[error] [client ::1] client denied by server configuration: proxy:http://127.0.0.1:5280/xmpp/ , referer: http://localhost/F5A379CEC35AEBCC5FFA11BA8A33CD02.cache.html
All you need to do is to modify
proxy.conf file for your Apache2 installation and setup proper permissions. By default the proxy is disabled for all. In my case I had to enable it just for a localhost.
Example configuration from my
vim mods-enabled/proxy.conf file:
<IfModule mod_proxy.c> ProxyRequests Off <Proxy *> Order deny,allow Deny from all Allow from localhost </Proxy> ProxyVia On </IfModule>
