Bug#212330: Feature question: port number in case of self refeering

Package: apache
Severity: wishlist


We're using apache web servers in a quite complex configuration. Several
apache webservers are running on various servers and binded to various
tcp ports, like 8080. A firewall make a decision which apache and which
port the incoming traffic should be directed. This works nicely, however
we've got a problem. Eg URL like: http://www.something.com/example, (where
example is a directory for real) will cause to redirect browser to
http://www.something.com:8080/example/ which WILL NOT work, since 8080
is an internal-behind-the-firewall-only thing, and can't be accessed
from outside!  My question is about the possibility to avoid this problem.
I can't find a solution with configuration options, so I must modify the
source to ALWAYS send back "normal tcp/80 port" whatever apache binds
to. But this is very ugly hack, and it is hard to upgrade binary only
distros of course, so I need to play with these from source and other
problems may occour as well. So it would be nice to have some configuation
possibility like this. Thanks in advance.
