How to redirect apache public url to docker container?
I searched already that it has something to the redirect module in apache, but I decided to ask here if someone can give me a direction where I should follow, because I am a bit lost.
The current situation is: I have a droplet with CentOS 7 x64 and within this droplet my
docker user with some docker containers (just showing 2 to better exemplify):
CONTAINER ID IMAGE COMMAND CREATED STATUS PORTS NAMES f381c6a9a341 image1 "docker-entrypoint..." 4 weeks ago Up 3 weeks 0.0.0.0:15435->5432/tcp app1_postgres 69fb1e99b463 image2-nodejs_web "/docker-entrypoin..." 3 weeks ago Up 3 weeks 0.0.0.0:10443->443/tcp app1_nodejs
There is a container for the nodejs app and another container of the database for this app. Everything works and they can communicate with each other.
Besides, in this same droplet (outside docker) I have the user
apache where I run httpd with my static portfolio in my custom domain https://www.myportfolio.dev.
What I would like: If I access https://www.myportfolio.dev/apps/app1 it redirects somehow from the
apache to the docker container running my nodejs app in the exposed port 10443.
What I could do until now: if someone access https://www.myportfolio.dev:10443, which is the https port I have opened for the nodejs container, the app is accessible, but this is not the approach I want. I want to have the /apps/APP_NAME in the url redirecting to the specific containers.
Additional info 1: I usually have routes in my nodejs and react apps, for example:
among other routes, and the redirect should work fine for this routes also.
Additional info 2: Either in my portfolio either in my apps I always use SSL. Please correct me if I am wrong, but the SSL key pairs for my portfolio can also be used for all my apps, because the apache httpd remains the same, it will be used as a “proxy” !?
Additional Question: Should I also create a subdomain for this app from the example before I configure them in apache? Something like CNAME e.g. myapp1.myportfolio.dev?
I would be really thankful for every help I receive here.
Thanks in advance!
