Apache Example


This topic describes steps to set up Apache as a reverse proxy for ISL Conference Proxy.

Apart from the steps mentioned in the parent topic you will need to change the following setting in ISL Conference Proxy administration:

  1. Set Enable FastCGI frontend to: Yes

Important: Make sure you also enable access on ports 7622 and 7623 from A.B.C.D to E.F.G.H in your firewall.

We have included a sample configuration file, tested with Apache 2.4.23.

The file myssl.cert is a file containing the appropriate certificate for the chosen DNS name (e.g. isl.example.com), modify appropriately.

The file myssl.key is a file containing the private key for the certificate above, modify appropriately.

You should adjust the list of supported ciphers to fit your requirements, values below are just an example.

Important: Make sure you modify the settings to match your requirements and your environment. Perform detailed connection and usage tests before placing such a server in production. Please refer to the Apache documentation for details.

Sample configuration file for Apache (000-default.conf):


LoadModule proxy_module modules/mod_proxy.so
LoadModule proxy_fcgi_module modules/mod_proxy_fcgi.so
LoadModule proxy_http_module modules/mod_proxy_http.so
LoadModule proxy_wstunnel_module modules/mod_proxy_wstunnel.so
LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so
LoadModule ssl_module modules/mod_ssl.so
