Context and perl regexps
I have the following context set up under LSWS SE 2.0.7:
[Proxy] "/" --> Java app server
I would like to selectively redirect certain directory paths to a different server, primarily for serving static content (LiteSpeed is acting as a firewall in this scenario).
I tried the following context:
[Proxy] exp:^/(css|img|ssi)/ --> Web server
Unfortunately, that Perl expression did not seem to work in that requests to http://myserver/css/my.css and others still go to the Java app server.
I then tried:
[Proxy] exp:^/(css|img|ssi)/.* --> Web server
which didn't produce the desired result, either. I am guessing that non-regexes are matched before regexes, which would always match against "/".
Other than using three separate contexts (/css/, /img/, /ssi/) is there a better way to do the above?
Actually, it should be faster than using regex matching.
How does the regexp matching work? Supposed I changed the context URIs like the following:
[Proxy] exp:^/.* --> Java App Server
[Proxy] exp:^/(css|img|ssi)/.* --> Static content provider
Which order would LSWS attempt to match incoming requests? Is there a way to specify that the 2nd exp should be tried first?
Yes, you can specify the order of contexts from the admin interface by clicking the "+"/"-" sign in the sequence colume. Regex context with lower sequence number will be tried first.
