Using Pound as a reverse Proxy

Requirements: You have OpenSSL installed and created a certificate.

Assumptions:

  • You have OpenACS 5.2 installed (branch oacs-5-2) under /www/service0
  • Your Server has the IP-Address 1.2.3.4
  • Pound is running on Port 443 under user "root" and group "users"
  • AOLserver on 127.0.0.1, Port 10000
  • Your certificate is under "/www/service0/certs/certificate.pem"

For an alternative of pound, see Nginx  with a sample configuration from Malte .

In order to use Pound for Load-Balancing and SSL encryption follow the below steps. Call "man pound" for a detailed description of the used parameters.

    ./configure
    make
    make install
