[Mapbender-users] Looking for help setting up OWSPROXY

Hi Len,

if you are running mapbender 2.4.2 you should not need to update class_* files.

What you need to change is the target of your redirection:
RedirectMatch ^.*owsproxy.([^i][\w\d]+)\/([\w\d]+)\/?$

In order for the target url to work you also need an alias defined in
your apache configuration
Alias /owsproxy/ /var/www/mapbender/owsproxy/  (change according to
your directory structure)

Before using owsproxy please make sure, that everything else is
working properly, i.e. that you are able to access your wms via
mapbender without owsproxy enabled (when owsproxy configuration is
done, you need to go to admin_en_services -> OWSPROXY and check the
wms you want to have secured by owsproxy.

Cheers, Michael
