Apache, proxypass and REMOTE_USER

Hello, still trying to get things going.
With proxypass the REMOTE_USER variable set by mod_auth_* is not passed
to
mongrel. I found another admin that has the same problem[1], but no
solution.
Did someone here solve this problem?

hi!

i had the same problem about a year ago, after some looooong research
i found a working solution (well hidden in the depths of google).

add this to your httpd.conf (within the block)

 RewriteEngine On
 RewriteCond %{REMOTE_USER} (.+)
 RewriteRule . - [E=RU:%1]
 RequestHeader set REMOTE_USER %{RU}e

this will add the header to the request that gets forwarded to the
mongrels.

cheers
