How to reverse proxy EthereumRPCPort through a domain name?

5. What I already tried:

6. Links to relevant resources:

Please upgrade to v2.4.6! You’re using an old version.

You should be running it as a systemd service, there’s a bunch of advantages. If you installed it with apt, then it should already be set up that way.

Make sure to have a space between your domain and {, it’s important, other wise the Caddyfile parser will not accept the domain.

Check your logs, there might be an error message about this.

Is that an HTTP server? Or is it some non-HTTP protocol? Caddy’s built-in reverse_proxy can only proxy HTTP and websocket traffic.

What’s in Caddy’s logs? See the page in the docs linked above, it shows you how to find your logs when running as a service.
