How to reverse_proxy to server with prefix path

1. Caddy version (caddy version):


2. How I run Caddy:

systemctl start caddy

a. System environment:

ubuntu 1804

b. Command:

paste command here

c. Service/unit/compose file:

paste full file contents here

d. My complete Caddyfile or JSON config:

80: {
   handle /api/* {



3. The problem I’m having:

I want the requested url: http://MYHOST/api/get to proxy to
But I can’t do this with “rervers_proxy” in my Caddyfile

4. Error messages and/or full log output:

Caddfile Parsing error

5. What I already tried:

6. Links to relevant resources:

You’ll want to use a rewrite to prepend to the path before proxying:

:80 {
	handle /api/* {
		rewrite * /prefix{uri}

But this Caddyfile doesn’t actually make sense because will essentially be a loopback from Caddy back onto itself, because it’s listening on :80. so you’ll need to fix that.

It works, Thank you for your help!
