Apache Configuration

The following examples show how to configure a vhost to make a PufferPanel instance on the same server accessible under panel.example.com

To use Apache 2 as a reverse proxy you will need to enable the following modules:

  • mod_proxy

  • mod_proxy_http

  • mod_proxy_wstunnel

  • mod_rewrite

This example assumes that you have a subdomain specific certificate located in Let’s Encrypts default location, however you can of course use certificates from other authorities and certificates stored in other locations as well

<IfModule mod_ssl.c>
    <VirtualHost _default_:443>
        ServerName panel.example.com

        ProxyPreserveHost On
        SSLProxyEngine On
        ProxyPass / http://localhost:8080/
        ProxyPassReverse / http://localhost:8080/

        RewriteEngine on
        RewriteCond %{HTTP:Upgrade} websocket [NC]
        RewriteCond %{HTTP:Connection} upgrade [NC]
        RewriteRule .* ws://localhost:8080%{REQUEST_URI} [P]

        SSLEngine on
        SSLCertificateFile /etc/letsencrypt/live/panel.example.com/fullchain.pem
        SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/letsencrypt/live/panel.example.com/privkey.pem
    </VirtualHost>
</IfModule>
