IPA has configuration for the automatic redirect to its UI when the host name is selected in the browser. This is not convenient when the cases when IPA is installed as an embedded component of some bigger application.
This ticket calls for creation of the addition install flag that would control the redirect configuration.
IMO it should be an undocumented installation switch. Something like: --no-ui-redirect
Deon, can you make sure there is some description on how to disable our taking over the web root? To not do it comment out the first rewriterule line in /etc/httpd/conf.d/ipa-rewrite.conf.
A comment is #. It would look like:
# By default forward all requests to /ipa. If you don't want IPA
# to be the default on your web server comment this line out.
