    Hi All,

    I just have a quick question regarding apache setup.

    I currently have 2 servers, one of which is a public access server to which university students can log in and do their work, store their files etc. The other is a backup server from which I'm hosting our website and have thus forwarded all "www" traffic to.
    Now what I'd like to do is to set up a reverse-proxy such that when people type in http://www.webserver.com/~uid/ they actually get http://www.develserver.com/~uid/ without the actual address changing. I've already set up Apache with proxying, but my problem is that I'd need to make an entry for each individual user and as I add more users, I'd need to be continually editing the file.

    So, does anyone know of a way to use wildcards in a reverse proxy situation?



    P.S. I hope this is in the right section... and if it's not, my apologies
