I called it HTTPD and / or Apache2 because I have been using CentOS more lately and need to distinguish that for search engines.
To configure a reverse proxy in httpd you need the following code:
<VirtualHost *:80> ServerName api.somesite.com Redirect / https://api.somesite.com/ </VirtualHost> <VirtualHost *:443> ServerName api.somesite.com SSLEngine on SSLCertificateFile /path/to/cert.pem SSLCertificateKeyFile /path/to/key.pem ErrorLog /path/to/logs/publicaname.example.com-ssl-error.log CustomLog /path/to/logs/publicaname.example.com-ssl.log combined ProxyPass / http://127.0.0.1:8000/ ProxyPassReverse / http://127.0.0.1:8000/ </VirtualHost>
Afterwards you will most likely have to open a port in your firewall. To do this you have to do the following:
sudo firewall-cmd --zone=public --add-port=8000/tcp
Even after that you may run into the issue where SELinux is not allowing outside communication with that port. To allow bind with SELinux use the following command:
/usr/sbin/setsebool -P httpd_can_network_connect 1
While the above may not be a surgical fix for this problem, it does solve the problem right away. I have included it in my sources at the bottom in case I need to refer back to it.
