OK, now have established that the https redirect is
an issue with the test set up that I have, so on the face of it the addition of
the ns_param location parameter seems to solve the problem.
Thanks for the help and guidance.
I have one other question about running
Initially I though that I would need to run Pound
from inittab in order to make sure that if for some reason it died, it would be
re-started. However, when I did this it kept re-spawning. I asked the question
and Robert very kindly replied that I need to configure Pound at compile time
without supervisor process and not to put itself into the
So although now I know HOW to run Pound from
inittab (or daemontools), my question becomes 'should I'?
Am I correct in thinking that Pound:
1) Puts itself into the background as the
specified, non-root user
2) Maintains a monitoring process whose job it is
to monitor Pound and to re-start it if it dies for some reason.
If so, am I correct in thinking that I need only
start Pound from any suitable startup script since it self monitors and keeps
itself alive without recourse to inittab or daemontools?
