We have HTTPS test server with a self-signed SSL certificate. Is there any reverse proxy that will enable us to visit the page in HTTP, so our program can send HTTP request and not an HTTPS request??
You can do it with apache.
First, you need to load the ssl, proxy, proxy_http and proxy_html modules.
Then, you need a proxy setting like this:
<VirtualHost 0.0.0.0:80> ServerName give_it_a_name SSLProxyEngine on ProxyPass / https://your-test-server/ ProxyPassReverse / https://your-test-server/ ErrorLog /the/error.log </VirtualHost>
Of course you don't need a VirtualHost for this, you can embed the ProxyPass* and the SSLProxy* directives to any other host definition.
Note that the certificate has to be signed by a trusted authority. If you use self-signed certificates, you have to supply them using the
Also, Apache checks if the name of the remote host is the same as the one the certificate issued to. You can disable this behavior by adding the
line to your config. For further settings, you may want to check the Apache docs.
