I don’t have any current issues, but I’m looking for some advice for my first crack at reverse proxy using Caddy. Hopefully I’ve come to the right place.
Not applicable at this point
Currently only installed on my mac using homebrew
MacOS Sonoma 14.0 (23A344)
Some background. We have an older server running Ubuntu 14.10. It is difficult to keep current with handling the SSL/TLS handshake. This causes periods from time to time where we are prevented access by browsers using a secure connection.
So we’d like to use Caddy as a reverse proxy to our web app and let it handle the SSL/TLS connection. Ideally, I think, we’d like to run it on a separate server so Caddy is not bogged down by the older technology.
Does this sound like a reasonable approach that would accomplish our goal? If so, would it be better to simply install it on the second server or run it in Docker on that server? And if all we are asking of Caddy it to handle the security layer, it seems like it should be a fairly simple setup or am I missing something?
Finally, if it sounds doable, if you have any links to articles, demos, or tutorials that show the best way to approach implementation, they would be greatly appreciated (i have already gone through much of the getting started stuff).
I appreciate any advice you can provide!
