Web Console - Listen Address? [Solved!]

Edit: Never mind, turns out Safari just doesn’t like the web console - Chrome FTW!

Sorry to bother folks :slight_smile:

Hi Guys,

We’ve been testing some VMs with quick box before tonight’s roll out. I noticed that If I hit the server via the LAN IP ( I can load the web console with no issues. If, however, I try to access via the openVPN IP ( - I cannot load the webconsole.

The first thing I wanted to check is if there is a listen address specified somewhere that I need to configure? Failing that, anybody seen this before?


The IP is actually embedded in the proxy file for the webconsole. Not sure why that is vs ‘localhost’

I’ve not encountered this particular issue.

Check out /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/USERNAME.console.conf the interior looks like this:

Is there a reason you use the IP in there?

The other example of reverse proxy for this used localhost.

ProxyRequests Off

<Proxy *>
AddDefaultCharset off
Order Allow,Deny
Allow from all

<Location /shell>
ProxyPass http://localhost:6125/
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

Redirect permanent /shell https://domain.com/shell

You can try it with localhost:PORT if you like. The ip of the install gets implemented in several configs, this is just one such location.

Just came back to see all the replies, thanks folks

I appreciate you taking the time to reply, I just made a mistake (lack of sleep) apologies for wasting your time, it’s sorted now.

No worries, glad you got this resolved… we really just look for an excuse to converse around here. Solved or not :smiley:
