To set up the forwarding of your SSH panel from your Iran VPS to your DigitalOcean VPS using a web URL, you can use a reverse proxy setup. Since you mentioned your SSH panel is running with Apache, you can configure Apache on your Iran VPS to act as a reverse proxy that forwards requests from to

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do this:

Step 1: Enable Proxy Modules

First, you need to ensure that the necessary proxy modules are enabled in Apache on your Iran VPS. You can do this by running the following commands:

sudo a2enmod proxy
sudo a2enmod proxy_http
sudo a2enmod proxy_balancer
sudo a2enmod lbmethod_byrequests
sudo systemctl restart apache2

Step 2: Configure Your Virtual Host

Next, you’ll need to create or edit a virtual host file for Here’s how you can set it up:

  1. Open the virtual host file for editing. If you don’t already have a specific file for, you can create one:
sudo nano /etc/apache2/sites-available/
<VirtualHost *:80>

    ProxyRequests Off
    ProxyPreserveHost On

    <Proxy *>
        Order deny,allow
        Allow from all

    ProxyPass "/p" ""
    ProxyPassReverse "/p" ""

    ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/t1.domain.com_error.log
    CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/t1.domain.com_access.log combined

This configuration tells Apache to forward any requests for to, while also handling the response headers so that the client’s browser behaves as if it were communicating directly with the origin server.

  1. Enable the new virtual host:
sudo a2ensite
  1. Reload Apache to apply the changes:
sudo systemctl reload apache2

Step 3: DNS and Firewall Configuration

  • Ensure that the DNS settings for are correctly pointing to your Iran VPS.
  • Check if your firewall settings on both the Iran and DigitalOcean VPS allow HTTP traffic on port 80 (or HTTPS on port 443 if you are using SSL).
