Re: HTTP headers are incorrectly treated case sensitive by jClouds causing OpenStack x-storage-url to fail


Hello David,

Thanks for the response.

I believe we are using the apache web frontend for the enabling SSL on the
end-points. I have asked our OpenStack folks to share the setup and
reasoning behind use of the Apache web frontend. They will respond here

I am not sure why our instance of Apache web frontend is returning lower
case X-Storage-Url. When we connect directly to the proxy, the X-Storage-Url
are correct case. But the Apache frontend somehow makes it all lower case.

Would it possible for you to share the relevant Apache config and other
setup details for the setup that you have?
