Hello, @pennicilin

Would you mind sharing the steps you’ve taken in order to configure the reverse proxy and also share the output of these commands:

netstat -plunta | grep nginx
netstat -plunta | grep 80
netstat -plunta | grep 443

You can double check that you’ve properly set the ports in the both the configuration files (presumably Apache and Nginx)

Also make sure that both web servers are up and running and that there are no syntax errors in the web config files, which you can check by this command:

sudo nginx -t

and

sudo apache2 -t
