Description:
Hello there,

I would like to embed my Minecraft-Dynmap (Port 8123) on my Bitnami Multisite (https, Port 443, no subdomains, only subpages).

I read, that I could create a reverse Proxy to embed a http-Website on a https-Website, but I don’t have any Idea how to do it.

Regards,
Daniel

Hi @renthner,

I think the best option here is to create a custom VirtualHost for your application and configure it with a ProxyPass and a ProxyPassReverse directives to your custom port. I’m posting here the links to our guide on how to create the custom virtualhost configuration on your stack, and also a link to a similar thread we solved in StackOverflow

Hi @gongomgra,

thanks for your reply. But from the posts I am not able to find out how to do this…

… to create a custom VirtualHost for your application …

I thougt with this comment you mean, that I would have to create another Virual Machine for the application. So now I’ve created two virtual machines. One for Bitnami Multisite and one for the Minecraft Server with the http-website I want to embed to the Multisite.
Maybe I’m stupid, but I also have to admit that I’m not a native speaker and don’t understand the instructions 100%.

Best regards,
Daniel

Hi @renthner,

Thanks for your message. What I meant was that you can have both applications in the same server and use Apache to serve both of them. In order to serve your Minecraft application, you need to create a new VirtualHost configuration in Apache with a ProxyPass.

One for Bitnami Multisite and one for the Minecraft Server with the http-website I want to embed to the Multisite

I’m afraid I don’t know if "embed Minecraft into Multisite is possible. We recommend you to check it with the Minecraft server developers

Hi @gongomgra,

well, the Minecraft Dynmap Application creates a normal http website. The Port is adjustable, so IF I can embed an http website on an https website with ProxyPass, there should be no problems.
I’ll try it in a couple of weeks, but for now I’m going on vacation :slight_smile:
I keep you updated.

Best regards,
Daniel

Hi @renthner,

Yes, the Minecraft app creates its own HTTP server, and I understand you want to serve it using Apache as if it was an additional application, i.e you will visit your WordPress website at wordpress.mydomain.com and Minecraft at minecraft.mydomain.com. You can do that with the virtualhost I mentioned above. Forcing HTTPS in a virtualhost is also possible.

If you want to have an specific page at wordpress.mydomain.com showing the Minecraft server (that is what I understand you mean with “embedding” it), then I’m afraid I don’t know how to do it, and you will need to ask for help on this in the official Dynmap support forums.
