Shibboleth apache configuration

shib.conf: Apache Shibboleth configuration. Add the following directive

<LocationMatch ^/[^webwork2_files|^webwork2_course_files]>
  AuthType shibboleth
  ShibRequestSetting requireSession 1
  require valid-user

When we put in the above we get a redirect loop after logging into shibboleth. We use this instead that seems to work better:

<Location /webwork2>
  AuthType shibboleth
  ShibRequireSession Off
  ShibUseHeaders On
  require shibboleth

There could be an issue with the paths but it is hard to tell. Anyone else run into the redirect loop? Sorry for putting this here I wasn't sure where to put the comment --Daniel Mundra 19:50, 28 March 2014 (EDT)
