This page configures certain paths and virtual host names under Apache to be served by forwarding the original web request to another URL. See also Reverse proxy.

Create / Edit


The URL path name or the virtual host name (an host FQDN). A path name will match URLs like http://somehost/<path name>/..., whilst a virtual host name will match an URL like http://<virtual host name>/.... Matching URLs are forwarded to the Target URL.

Access from CIDR networks

Restrict the access from the given list of CIDR networks. Elements must be separated with a “,” (comma).

SSL/TLS certificate

Select a certificate that is compatible with the virtual host name.

Require SSL encrypted connection

If enabled, the URL path or virtual host name can be accessed only with an SSL/TLS connection.

Target URL

The URL where the original request is forwarded. An URL has the form <scheme>://<hostname>:<port>/<path>.

Accept invalid SSL certificate from target

If the Target URL has the https scheme, accept its certificate even if it is not valid.

Forward HTTP “Host” header to target

When enabled, this option will pass the HTTP “Host” header line from the incoming request to the proxied host, instead of the “hostname” specified in the Target URL field.
