Redirect for YunoHost
This package allows you to install Redirect quickly and simply on a YunoHost server. If you don't have YunoHost, please consult the guide to learn how to install it.
This application allows to integrate a custom tile in YunoHost's user portal. Typical use cases include:
- visible 301/302 redirect : having a "virtual" app tile that's just a redirection to another url or external website
- invisible redirect / reverse-proxy : creating an app tile for a local app listening on a specific port, or a Docker container, or an app hosted on another machine
In technical terms: this app only adds a NGINX configuration snippet with either
proxy_pass rule, and a YunoHost tile + appropriate SSOwat configuration.
Shipped version: 1.0.0~ynh5
Disclaimers / important information
The client will be redirected to another url or external website
your-domain.com -> another-domain.net
your-domain.com/foo -> another-domain.net/bar
Invisible redirect (a.k.a "reverse-proxy")
Visitor's address bar will remain the same. Typically used to integrate into YunoHost a manually-installed app into the portal.
you-domain.com/foo -> http://220.127.116.11:8080/app
IMPORTANT: you may have to further tweak the
redirect.conf in the nginx configuration, depending on your needs!
IMPORTANT: Many apps do not support being redirected to a different path due to relative links! This means that some apps being hosted for example on http://127.0.0.1:5050/app/ MUST be redirected to http://domain.tld/app/ and NOT http://domain.tld/someotherapp/. For example : an Odoo Docker container runs on http://127.0.0.1:8069/. You will not be able to redirect it to http://domain.tld/odoo/ ! You have to redirect it to the root, so for example http://odoo.domain.tld/
