Event details


Trying to follow your great tutorial. However, I am stuck with the curl command. It gives me as a return "GET requests are not allowed!". The same command with port 8081 correctly returns "Howdy world!". Any ideas on how to solve this?

You now know how to set up Apache as a reverse proxy to one or many underlying application servers. can be used effectively to configure reverse proxy to application servers written in a vast array of languages and technologies, such as Python and Django or Ruby and Ruby on Rails. It can be also used to balance traffic between multiple backend servers for sites with lots of traffic or to provide high availability through multiple servers, or to provide secure SSL support to backend servers not supporting SSL natively.

In this tutorial, you'll set up Apache as a basic reverse proxy using the , but you can use any backend server you prefer.


With the database installed and the initial setup complete, you can now install the Mattermost server. See .

A is a type of proxy server that takes HTTP(S) requests and transparently distributes them to one or more backend servers. Reverse proxies are useful because many modern web applications process incoming HTTP requests using backend application servers which aren't meant to be accessed by users directly and often only support rudimentary HTTP features.

Very nice tutorial. Is it better to use mod_proxy or HAProxy to set up a reverse proxy/load-balancing system? We are fairly ambivalent about it, but wondering what other people's experience has been either way? Using Ubuntu 16.04 and 18.04 LTS systems, fwiw.

Here, we are preceding the .

NGINX is configured using a file in the directory. You need to create the file and then enable it. When creating the file, you need the IP address of your Mattermost server and the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of your Mattermost website.

A complete Mattermost installation consists of 3 major components: a proxy server, a database server, and the Mattermost server. You can install all components on 1 machine, or you can install each component on its own machine. If you have only 2 machines, then install the proxy and the Mattermost server on one machine, and install the database on the other machine.
