Proxying with Apache2 on Ubuntu

Filed under: tinkering,ubuntu,webcam — jaydublu @ 4:01 pm

Further to earlier problems with using Apache2 on Ubuntu to proxy web requests to devices inside my local network, I think I’ve now sussed it.

Specifically, I’m trying to get Apache to enable external access to a webcam inside my network, where for some reason I can’t enable access to it directly using my router.

I’m now relatively confident that the appropriate way to do it is to enable mod_proxy and mod_proxy_http with sudo a2enmod proxy_http, this then allows use of ProxyPass directive within a vhost for example:

ProxyPass /webcam http://192.168.1.15/
