Sorry if this question has been asked before searched and couldn't find
anyone specifically talking about this. In the Galaxy wiki under
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:
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.
