Caddy does not listen on port 80

  1. The problem I’m having:
    I am trying to reverse proxy using Caddy, I have setup a caddyfile to do exactly that, however when I run Caddy and check it’s status I see this in the output
Feb 22 23:29:58 instance-20210603-2006 caddy[1286196]: {"level":"info","ts":1708644598.1954994,"logger":"http.auto_https","msg":"serv
er is listening only on the HTTPS port but has no TLS connection policies; adding one to enable TLS","server_name":"srv0","https_port

it can generate certificates and I can access the domain I wish to access through HTTPS, it is secure and has the correct certification,however I understand that Caddy needs to be able to listen to Port 80 also so naturally I would like to ensure Caddy can do that.

    As above in section 1.

It’s automatic, you don’t need to do anything.

To be clear, a “server” is an internal thing in Caddy, there can be more than one. This is just saying that “srv0 is listening only on the HTTPS port” but there’s also srv1 which is listening for HTTP.
