Subject Re: [users@httpd] Port Forwarding Help?
Date Sun, 20 Jan 2019 20:50:19 GMT
I found out that the problem was that I was using port 8080 which was blocked by my ISP.  I
managed to get it to work using a different port (port 8443 didn't work either).

Now I need to ask this: if I want to put my app behind Apache's reverse proxy, do I need to
set up port forwarding for just the port that I set for the reverse proxy in ProxyPass directive,
or do I also have to do it for the one Apache is listening on?

Also, I got a free DynDNS from and I'm serving my app on port 5501 on it, but is
there no way I can use a URL where specifying the port number isn't a requirement?  The URL
is .  And if I want to get an SSL certificate for it, seeing
as I'm hosting it on my own computer with a Dynamic DNS, how do I prove ownership of the domain
when I try to use something like this? .
