Step 4 : Configure Nginx/Varnish or Apache as proxy servers
These options depend on the webservers you have currently installed
Example if you have installed nginx/varnish/apache you can use:
nginx -> custom port (this will proxy directly to tomcat) RECOMMENDED
nginx/varnish -> custom port (this will proxy to varnish cache and then to tomcat)
nginx/varnish/apache -> custom port (this will proxy to varnish cache and then to apache and then to tomcat)
Configure webservers for domain to be used for Tomcat:
CWP.Admin left Menu -> Webserver settings -> Webserver Domain Conf -> Select Username -> Select Domain/Subdomain -> create configuration -> select any option with (custom port) -> check the box – Rebuild webserver conf for domain on save -> Enter port 8080 for the custom port, leave IP as 127.0.0.1 -> save changes
step 5: Test HTTPS access now
Domain can now be accessed via https.
You can also install ssl via ssl manager later if you have set apache or nginx as default webservers and set as a proxy to port via WebServers Domain Conf module.
