Using Proxy Server together with App Platform


I have a domain managed by DO that is pointed to app platform.I want to have both an app and a blog separately, will be pointed app platform and droplet. Keep in mind that beside the main domain multiple domain will be pointed to the same app for example, Is there any way to use a proxy server in-between app platform and the blog in order to have a blog on a subdirectory ?

Hello @simbyone2

You can create a reverse proxy from Nginx to the URL generated from the App platform.

Hi there,

One option here would be to just setup a redirect for to go to a subdomain. That way you will not have to setup a proxy service to handle all requests, but you can just point the blog subdomain A record to the Droplet and then keep the main domain pointed to the App Platform. This will simplify your setup and make it more maintainable in the long run.

Besides that, there isn’t an option to do that out of the box, what you would need to do is to setup an Nginx service or an HAProxy service on a Droplet and configure all of your proxy rules there. Here is a discussion that covers some of the blockers that you might hit along the way:
