Configure reverse proxy for alfresco community 5.2 windows

Question asked by ianfraser143@gmail.com on Jul 28, 2017
Latest reply on Aug 1, 2017 by cesarista

Hey guys,

 

We have Alfresco Community version up and running on our local windows 2008 server. We have the SSL certificates in place.

 

We are in the process of setting up reverse proxy for Alfresco. There are many outdated documentations to complete this however none of the steps are working.

 

We are trying to accomplish reverse proxy so that all incoming requests for the main alfresco server, which runs on Tomcat gets wrapped automatically to SSL. (http to https).

 

Do you guys have an updated current documentation(s) to help us accomplish this?

 

For your reference we are attaching our config files.( global properties and server.xml )

 

Please provide any documents for configuring Alfresco reverse proxy for version 5.2.
