I am using a proxmox 5.4 version and they are already installed and working on ip address.
But, I desire to be accessible from internet by my domain. From local network using my domain is accessible.
I done that configuration:
- edited /etc/hosts
- https certification (,_5.0_and_5.1)
- edited /etc/default/pveproxy

Nothing that configuration worked.
Someone have a step-by-step to be accessible from internet the proxmox webgui?
You can't magically make this happen by configuring Proxmox. You have to configure the Internet. One way to do that:
  1. Obtain an public IP from your ISP or hosting provider.
  2. Register a domain name with some public registrar (e.g. GoDaddy, NameCheap, etc). Tell them where your DNS is hosted, or use their service.
  3. Configure your domain's DNS to point some name to the IP you got in step 1.
  4. Profit!
There are other ways. For example, you can host a server on your private LAN by using a dynamic DNS service (e.g. DynDNS) and port-forwarding on your router (assuming your ISP's terms allow this).
I already have public IP and DNS to resolving name on the internet and is working.
Moreover, I am running other services in my LAN with other public IP, like the gitlab, data synchronize and other essential services to provide a development environment.
I guess to make my proxmox reachable on the internet is need to configure the firewall proxmox and some proxy proxmox or install and configure anything like nginx or apache.

BobhWasatch, you have some idea?
I found the solution!
First, you need to open the ports on the Linux firewall and after in the proxmox firewall. I don't know why, but there is difference between them (firewall).
