Protecting the admin console

Hi,

Is it possible to protect the HTTP admin console with a username/password box like Apache’'s .htaceess ?

If so, how ?

Any help would be appreciated.

Warm Regards,

Hi Mário,

no it’'s not. Unless you are using a reverse HTTP proxy in front of the openfire web console.

What would be the benefit of using a HTTP Basic authentication instead of a form based authentication?

Hi,

“What would be the benefit of using a HTTP Basic authentication instead of a form based authentication?”

None, except to please my boss will

Can you tell me how do I do that with the proxy ?

I have an Apache with mod_proxy in the same machine as Openfire.

Thanks in advance.

I’'ve tried reverse proxying like this:


ServerName openfire.myhost.com


Yet get


Proxy Error

The proxy server received an invalid response from an upstream server.

The proxy server could not handle the request GET /index.jsp.

Reason: DNS lookup failure for: localhost:9090index.jsp


Could Openfire developers explain on how to put Openfire behind apache2?

Thanks.

Hi,

you may want to add a trainling / to your config, like

ProxyPass http://localhost:9090/

ProxyPassReverse http://localhost:9090/
