Apache returns 500 code instead of 404 code when a context that does not exist is accessed by using mod_cluster

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • If a wrong application name is accessed through Apache httpd, the response is 500 code, but it should be a 404 code. The requests are proxied to mod_cluster as following:
ProxyPass        / balancer://mycluster stickysession=JSESSIONID|jsessionid nofailover=On
ProxyPassReverse / balancer://mycluster
