Hi,

I can't get my reverse proxy to work right in order to access Proxmox via mydomain / proxmox. I believe that I am fairly close to getting it to work as the index of the page loads as well as some other peices of the webpage. The configuration that I based my proxy can be found on a 2015 blogspot by xorthings but it appears to be for version 4 of proxmox and does not work with the version I have installed (5.1).

However proxmoxlib.js?ver=1.0-18 gives a 404 not found as it tries to load my domain / proxmoxlibjs?ver=1.0-18 when it should actually be loading my domain / proxmox / proxmoxlib.js?ver=1.0-18. I think this wouldnt be a problem if the index file didn't use a leading slash for the script reference but I dont know where that is kept on the pve host. Can anyone here help me correct my Nginx configuration to get this reverse proxy setup working?

Nginx configuration:
Code:
upstream proxmox {
    server "mydomain";
}

server {
    listen 80 default_server;
    rewrite ^(.*) http(s) : //$host$1 permanent;
}

server {
    listen 443;
    server_name _;
    ssl on;
    ssl_certificate /etc/letsencrypt/live/mydomain/fullchain.pem; # managed by Certbot
    ssl_certificate_key /etc/letsencrypt/live/mydomain/privkey.pem; # managed by Certbot
  location ~* ^/(?:proxmox|pve2|api2|novnc)$ {
    rewrite /(proxmox|pve2|api2|novnc) /$1/ permanent;
  }
  location ~* ^/(?:proxmox|pve2|api2|novnc)/ {
    rewrite /proxmox/(.*) /$1 break;
    rewrite /((?:pve2|api2|novnc)/.*) /$1 break;
    proxy_pass http(s) : //192.168.X.X:8006;
    proxy_read_timeout 90;
    proxy_redirect off;
    proxy_http_version 1.1;
    proxy_set_header Connection "upgrade";
    proxy_set_header Origin http : //$host;
    proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
    proxy_set_header Host $host;
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto $scheme;
    add_header X-Frame-Options SAMEORIGIN;
  }
}

I also tried it back in 2017 and I was not able to do it. I ended up using a virtual host without any directory remapping. It worked straight away.

I also tried a reverse proxy via a sub-directory with apache and couldn't get it to work. Similar to LnxBil, I managed to get it working without any modifications with a new virtual host instead.

I've just been trying to do same.
Has anyone got this to work (with Nginx)?
I was also trying to do with Haproxy, but without success
