Daily Log for #alfresco

2019-09-08 07:04:25 GMT <grendal_prime> ok migration is done. Ive done this to death, i think i got the hang of this now.

2019-09-08 07:05:20 GMT <grendal_prime> next is ...umm ive got a lets-encrypt cert on the apache2 proxy...im having one hell of a time getting this to work..and i have one to model from but it is not workin the same way.

2019-09-08 07:13:36 GMT <phaleth> grendal_prime: try something like this https://paste.ofcode.org/378JxjKFrXLDmjjGPeCB6Tx without the rewrite part

2019-09-08 07:13:37 GMT <alfbot> Title:Paste ofCode (at paste.ofcode.org)

2019-09-08 07:14:19 GMT <phaleth> required modules are: a2enmod rewrite proxy proxy_http headers ssl

2019-09-08 07:19:56 GMT <grendal_prime> ya i got all that...

2019-09-08 07:20:49 GMT <grendal_prime> they werid part is that...well im looking at the site config on my working machine..i dont see were to put the ip address that the proxy is going to send the data to

2019-09-08 07:22:44 GMT <phaleth> ProxyPass and ProxyPassReverse i guess

2019-09-08 07:25:29 GMT <grendal_prime> its weird thats not in my config..and it is somehow working.

2019-09-08 07:26:36 GMT <phaleth> sounds like the traffic is bypassing the proxy, try with curl

2019-09-08 07:29:48 GMT <grendal_prime> my brain hurts.

2019-09-08 07:33:03 GMT <phaleth> curl -ILk your.domain.com

2019-09-08 07:33:23 GMT <phaleth> brain needs a rest

2019-09-08 07:34:29 GMT <grendal_prime> ok so im pretty confused with this entire thing when it comes to https. So if i go to my alfresco server via its local ip i go to say and that works... however i did set the port to 443 and protocl to https in the global.propertys file and i restarted the sever.

2019-09-08 07:36:04 GMT <grendal_prime> by the way that curl command came back with Server: Apache/2.4.18 (Ubuntu)

2019-09-08 07:39:52 GMT <phaleth> grendal_prime: and alfresco on the backend is running on tomcat's Coyote?

2019-09-08 07:40:13 GMT <phaleth> if so seems like curl hits the reverse proxy then

2019-09-08 07:40:26 GMT <grendal_prime> caltalina

2019-09-08 07:40:44 GMT <grendal_prime> it just seems to be all kinds of goofy,

2019-09-08 07:41:20 GMT <phaleth> yeah, catalina is the engine of tomcat, i wasn't sure alfresco uses tomcat as web server

2019-09-08 07:41:41 GMT <phaleth> ok, what if you simply change back the port 443 on backend to 8443, the way it was

2019-09-08 07:42:01 GMT <phaleth> and then on apache proxy go from 443 to 8443 on tomcat backend

2019-09-08 07:45:32 GMT <phaleth> also if you proxy from https to https on the backend you need more stuff in the VirtualHost config, like SSLProxyEngine On etc.

2019-09-08 07:53:03 GMT <grendal_prime> this is just werid

2019-09-08 08:00:30 GMT <grendal_prime> im going to bed

2019-09-08 08:00:40 GMT <phaleth> night

2019-09-08 15:35:38 GMT <grendal_prime> ok can anybody tell me how to set up a ssl proxy from apache to alfresco? I have the lets-encrypt installed and working, i just keep getting a

2019-09-08 15:35:44 GMT <grendal_prime> The requested URL /share was not found on this server.

2019-09-08 16:15:52 GMT <grendal_prime> Nevermind i got it

2019-09-08 16:16:18 GMT <grendal_prime> i used libapache2-mod-jk

2019-09-08 20:20:26 GMT <AFaust> ~later tell grendal_prime: I prefer to use mod_proxy for Apache, as that does not rely (solely) on the binary AJP protocol and is generally easier to set up

2019-09-08 20:20:26 GMT <alfbot> AFaust: The operation succeeded.
