Hi all,

Sorry if this question has been asked before searched and couldn't find
anyone specifically talking about this.  In the Galaxy wiki under
https://bitbucket.org/galaxy/galaxy-central/wiki/Config/ApacheProxy there
are instructions for setting up Galaxy behind a web server proxy.  I
wondered what are the reasons/advantages of doing a reverse proxy using all
mod_rewrite directives (as shown in the instructions) vs doing a standard
Apache front-end reverse proxy:

ProxyRequests Off
ProxyPass / http://galaxy.host.domain:8080/
ProxyPassReverse / http://galaxy.host.domain:8080/

The instructions using mod_rewrite are making a reverse proxy too since the
RewriteRule directive has the [P] flag.

regards,
Leandro
