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
- Accept invalid SSL certificate from target
- If the Target URL has the
httpsscheme, 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.
