ProxCP Force SSL

The ProxCP Web zip file contains a default .htaccess file. To force HTTPS web connections with ProxCP, simply open the .htaccess file and uncomment the 2 lines regarding HTTPS (they start with "#").

  • Note: .htaccess files only work with the Apache web server. If you are using a different web server, you will need to edit the web server's configuration accordingly to force HTTPS.

Changing ProxCP Daemon URL

Upon installation, you set the URL and port of the ProxCP Daemon. If you need to change this value for any reason in the future:

  • On your ProxCP Daemon server, edit the config.js file with the correct IP/port setting
  • On your ProxCP Web server, edit the js/io.js file with the correct URL and port setting
