Using try_files with reverse_proxy

1. The problem I’m having:

I’m using caddy as a proxy server. I want to know if there is any way that I can use try_files so that it will look for index.html on my proxy server.

2. My Caddy File

*.bitsy.test {
    reverse_proxy {
        rewrite /{}{uri}
        header_up Host "bitsy"

3. Caddy version:


a. System environment:


try_files is looking for files on disk. If Caddy doesn’t have access to the files, it can’t be used.

Thanks for getting back to me. Is there any workaround by using if else statements?

I don’t understand what you mean. Like I said, unless Caddy has direct access to the files, then it can’t make decisions on whether a request path matches a file that exists… because to Caddy, the files don’t exist because it can’t see them.

Caddy doesn’t have if/else, it has request matchers.
