I want to set up utorrent with webui on my server.
Utorrent sets up its own webserver which, by default, listens on port 8080.
The ui is then accessed by accessing example.com:8080/gui
My goal is to have subdomain.server.com using reverse proxy.
The problem comes when I discovered that some urls are hard coded to /gui/* which of course breaks things.
I'm now trying to remove that initial /gui from the request using mod rewrite but for some reason it's not working.
I can access the site (I get the utorrent loading screen) but if I check my log I see that all requests to
/gui/token.html get a 404 Not Found response,
/token.html works just fine if I try it manually though.
I've tried moving the rewrite to the proxy but that doesn't work either.
What I have so far
Here is my virtual host file:
<IfModule mod_ssl.c> <VirtualHost *:443> ServerName subdomain.example.com RewriteEngine on RewriteRule ^/gui(/?)(.*)$ /$2 ProxyRequests off ProxyPass / http://127.0.0.1:8080/gui/ ProxyPassReverse / http://127.0.0.1:8080/gui/ RequestHeader set Authorization "Basic YWRtaW46" ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/utorrent-error.log CustomLog /var/log/apache2/utorrent-access.log common SSLEngine on SSLCertificateFile /etc/ssl/certs/*.domain.crt SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/ssl/private/*.domain.key SSLCACertificateFile /etc/ssl/certs/domain-ca-ssl.crt BrowserMatch "MSIE [2-6]" \ nokeepalive ssl-unclean-shutdown \ downgrade-1.0 force-response-1.0 BrowserMatch "MSIE [17-9]" ssl-unclean-shutdown </VirtualHost> <proxy http://127.0.0.1:8080/gui/*> Order deny,allow Deny from all Allow from all AuthName subdomain.example.com AuthType Basic AuthUserFile /etc/utorrent/.htpasswd Require valid-user </proxy> </IfModule>
