Do you already have apache2 configured on your server, and you want to have another application running on the same port as apache have? which is port 80.
We can do it by implementing reverse proxy, so how to do it?
1. Create Virtual Host
We need to create a virtual host, in this case I will try to create magento245.dev.fiko.me
<VirtualHost *:80> ServerAdmin email@example.com ServerName testing.dev.fiko.me </VirtualHost>
2. Setup Reverse Proxy
Next we need to place reverse proxy, and point this virtual host to original port you have previously installed on. In this case I already installed my application locally on port of 8082, so I need to point to port of 8082.
<VirtualHost *:80> ServerAdmin firstname.lastname@example.org ServerName testing.dev.fiko.me SSLProxyEngine On RequestHeader set Front-End-Https "On" ProxyPreserveHost On SSLProxyVerify none SSLProxyCheckPeerCN off SSLProxyCheckPeerName off SSLProxyCheckPeerExpire off ProxyPass / http://127.0.0.1:8082/ ProxyPassReverse / http://127.0.0.1:8082/ </VirtualHost>
3. Try to test your apache2 configuration
Try to run :
sudo apache2ctl configtest
it should have
Syntax Ok response.
Once it's good, restart your apache
sudo service apache2 restart
and try to access your application from browser.
4. Install Required Modules (Optional)
Do you face this error?
It's too general, but maybe you haven't enabled required apache2 modules, you need to enable these modules:
sudo a2enmod ssl sudo a2enmod proxy sudo a2enmod proxy_balancer sudo a2enmod proxy_http
Then restart your apache2, and refresh the browser.
