Use of basicauth

1. Caddy version (caddy version):

v2.4.6 h1:HGkGICFGvyrodcqOOclHKfvJC0qTU7vny/7FhYp9hNw=

2. How I run Caddy:

I run Caddy on a server (Macmini) with Ubuntu together with a domotica websolution (Domoticz). I want to use caddy to reverse proxy to Domoticz on port 443. But with a basicauth option so that I have to login and only me can use this. I have a domain and did a port forward to port 443 on this server.

a. System environment:

Ubuntu 20.04.3 LTS

b. Command:

sudo systemctl restart caddy.service

Paste command here.

c. Service/unit/compose file:

Paste full file contents here.
Make sure backticks stay on their own lines,
and the post looks nice in the preview pane.

d. My complete Caddyfile or JSON config:

******.nl {
basicauth {
tls internal

(In this list the password is on a new line. In my Caddyfile it is on the same line. I validate the Caddyfile by caddy validate).

Paste config here, replacing this text.
Use `caddy fmt` to make it readable.
DO NOT REDACT anything except credentials.
Make sure the backticks stay on their own lines.

3. The problem I’m having:

Problem: I do not get the basicauth login screen. The reverse proxy goes straight to the web application (Domoticz ) without giving a loginscreen.

4. Error messages and/or full log output:

5. What I already tried:

I have tried also to install the apache2-utils but this didn’t help.

Your post is very difficult to read. Please follow the instructions in the template, your config should be within a code block so that it preserves whitespace and formatting.

Sorry about that. As a new member the template was not that clear. I also hoped for a good hint for a solution. In the mean time I solved the problem. I was mixing up the portnumbers so that reverse proxy went straight to the server.

The template says

Paste config here, replacing this text.

But you didn’t paste it there, you pasted it above that. I think the instructions are pretty clear. What specifically were you confused about?

Great! :+1:
