RE: svn COPY 502 bad gateway over HTTPS

From: Maurer, Hermann <Hermann.Maurer_at_gft.com>

we are using an apache server as reverse proxy on the external webserver, which the svn-clients speak HTTPS with, and an apache server on the internal server with svn. The first solution we had used, was a perl script, which used by the mod_perl and directives SetHandler and PerlHeaderParserHandler in the apache configuration file. The idea here is to rewrite the url in the appropriate webdav method call, bevor the url would be handled by mod_dav_svn. Please search the list for the script and the configuration.

The next solution, we are using now and which I'd prefer, is to activate the ssl connection between the reverse proxy and the internal apache server. The key word is 'SSLProxyEngine On'. The internal apache server must be able to talk HTTPS too.

        Betreff: svn COPY 502 bad gateway over HTTPS
        My company is using SVN for a few months on a pilot project (we've been using CVS before and would like to migrate to SVN, but we must be sure this can be done smoothly). We have now decided to use it over HTTPs to open it to our external developers. Unfortunately, we're blocked on a weird (but known) problem: the "svn COPY 502 bad gateway over HTTPS" problem.
        Searching on google and in the svn mailing lists, I've seen different explanations and solutions (or workarounds) for it, but I can't decide which one is the correct one and will work for us. We'd like to find an easy solution, but it doesn't look like this exists. We're a bit lost with the amount of (often unclear for the novice) information. If someone could explain us clearly what is the problem (it looks like it is the mod_dav module in Apache that uses absolute urls instead of relative ones. Right ? Is it a problem only when using a reverse proxy over https ?) and how to fix it, that would be really kind.
