Reverse proxy WebTools Plex


(Stonedestroyer) #1

I am trying to get Plex WebTools to be working with reverse proxy.
This is what I got so far

   proxy /webtools 192.168.1.5:33400/webtools {
		without /webtools
		transparent
	}

This is the instructions on the site and my config. Does Caddy not support proxypass and proxypass reverse options? https://i.imgur.com/cwCYfoD.png

The Base URL text box is used to enter the url required if you are using a proxy server. If you do not use a proxy server, then leave this text box blank.

EG: Your base URL may be something like: /WebTools

If using mod_proxy from Apache something like this should do it:

AllowEncodedSlashes NoDecode

ProxyPass /WebTools http://localhost:33400/WebTools nocanon

ProxyPassReverse /WebTools http://localhost:33400/WebTools nocanon```

Solved it was my issue with running multiple plex instances. The configuration above works.

I do have a question. Which approach is the better one?

	proxy /webtools 192.168.1.5:33400/webtools {
		without /webtools
		transparent
	}

Option 2:

	proxy /webtools 192.168.1.5:33400 {
		transparent
	}
