Reverse Proxies


You can run IRCAnywhere behind Apache quite easily, you can also choose to run it behind a subdirectory if you please, this example runs it behind You can do this by adding the following to your configuration file.

ProxyPreserveHost On
RewriteEngine On

RewriteRule ^/?ircanywhere/(.*) https://%{SERVER_NAME}:3000/$1 [P]

RewriteRule ^/?api/(.*) https://%{SERVER_NAME}:3000/api/$1 [P]
RewriteRule ^/?build/(.*) https://%{SERVER_NAME}:3000/build/$1 [P]
RewriteRule ^/?websocket/(.*) https://%{SERVER_NAME}:3000/websocket/$1 [P]
RewriteRule ^/?sounds/(.*) https://%{SERVER_NAME}:3000/sounds/$1 [P]

ProxyPassReverse /ircanywhere/ https://%{SERVER_NAME}:3000/

ProxyPassReverse /websocket https://%{SERVER_NAME}:3000/websocket/
ProxyPassReverse /build https://%{SERVER_NAME}:3000/build/
ProxyPassReverse /api https://%{SERVER_NAME}:3000/api/
ProxyPassReverse /sounds https://%{SERVER_NAME}:3000/sounds/


The following will run ircanywhere under a subdomain in nginx, like apache this can be configured to be a top level domain or a sub directory easily.

server {
    listen 80;

    location /websocket/ {
        proxy_pass http://localhost:3000;
        proxy_http_version 1.1;
        proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
        proxy_set_header Connection "upgrade";

    location / {
        proxy_http_version 1.1;
        proxy_set_header   X-Real-IP        $remote_addr;
        proxy_set_header   X-Forwarded-For  $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
        proxy_set_header   X-NginX-Proxy    true;
        proxy_set_header   Host             $http_host;
        proxy_set_header   Upgrade          $http_upgrade;
        proxy_redirect     off;
        proxy_pass         http://localhost:3000;
