A follow up question/comment on using Apache in the front end of Plone:
I tried the little plone.conf file Paul posted, and it worked like a charm! It worked at the first try!
I had tried the instructions posted here:
And no luck! A couple of days scratching my head and nothing.
I see Paul's little file uses a simple "rewrite" without alias or anything fancy. But it seems to work fine. The other example uses rewrite and proxy, but does not work.
What's the deal with "rewrite" vs "proxy"?
Reading Apache's docs here:
Sounds that rewrite already is using proxy: "mod_rewrite provides the [P] flag, which allows URLs to be passed, via mod_proxy, to another server"
Just curious. I want to understand better how Plone works.
