Error! SSLPROXY. In OSSN what would be the instruction needed to insert in "ossn.config.site.php" to solve this problem?

Victor Barroso Oliveira Posted in Technical Support 2 weeks ago

Good afternoon,
I did an OSSN installation with the server's ip number http: // meuip / ossn.
When I change the file "ossn.config.site.php"
$ Ossn-> url = 'https: // mydomain / ossn /'; the system has an error.
I verified that there is a Reverse Proxy in our network.
This same error also occurred when installing the "Moodle" software on the same server. In Moodle this was solved by inserting a line "$ CFG-> sslproxy = true;" in the config.php of the Moodle installation.
In OSSN what would be the instruction needed to insert in "ossn.config.site.php" to solve this problem?
Thanks, VicTOR

Hi Victor i am not sure what is wrong, follow my advice reimage the server with Ubuntu 20.04 and run https://www.opensource-socialnetwork.org/wiki/view/3994/how-to-install-ossn-on-ubuntu-1804-2004-x64-using-command-line and make sure the server IP is publicly accessible.

When you visit the IP and you see the installation page don't continue installation now use yourwebsite URL instead.

We are only using Apache.
I believe that something is missing from the OSSN configuration for a reverse proxy in Apache.
We used several other software on this server without any problems.

We are not Moodle, and i am not sure what is wrong but i am pretty sure its something to do with your proxy and you are not only using Apache but something else also like nginx

Moodle has an instruction for those who use SSL on external Apache (it is suggested), add this line to your configuration:

$ CFG-> sslproxy = true;

Does the OSSN not have a configuration for those who use SSL on external Apache?

Yes, install on apache, mysql, php no other tool involved.

So i am guessing you are trying to install on apache, mysql, php no other tool involved. A pure apache only.

When I visit https://yourwebiste.com/ it works more direct to http: // myip /

Do you have SSL installed and running? Lets forgot about OSSN so when you visit https://yourwebiste.com/ does it it work?
