Apache Reverse Proxy for the WebUI


(Zukoo) #1

Hello,

Just sharing a little config pretty useful if you want the webui to share the same port as a web site already hosted with Apache:

RewriteRule ^/gui$ /gui/ [R]
ProxyPass /gui/ http://localhost:8080/
<Location /gui/>
  ProxyPassReverse http://localhost:8080/
  Order Allow,Deny
  Allow from All
</Location>

Add this to a *.conf file in conf.d directory of apache and it will redirect all requests on your standard apache port at location gui/ to a syncthing WebUI hosted at localhost:8080.

This is also useful if you want to reuse your apache configuration such as SSL certificates or authentication.

Another possibility to get the same is a .htaccess file in a folder of your webroot (for example gui to get the same like in your example)

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !=on
RewriteCond %{ENV:HTTPS} !=on
RewriteRule .* https://%{SERVER_NAME}%{REQUEST_URI} [R=301,L]
RewriteRule ^(.*) http://localhost:8080/$1 [P]

this also redirects to https to prevent opening the gui unencrypted over the web. I use this method because I can’t change the config of apache on my shared hosting provider :smiley:

Maybe those methods should be added to the docs that people can easily find that?

It would be awesome if you guys could add these to the documentation repo.


(Zukoo) #4

I can do it.

I use configuration from https://docs.syncthing.net/users/reverseproxy.html#folder-configuration on my nginx server. But when I run myadresse . com/syncthing/ my website reload this url : myadresse . com can you help me?

Could you post your configuration for the relevant virtual host? I expect there’s another location block taking precedence.

it’s here:
