I am using OH2 on Debian Jessie. I had setup an Apache Reverse Proxy to access http://openhab/habpanel/ instead of http://openhab:8080/habpanel/. Openhab itself (PaperUI, Basic and Classid UI) is working well. But Habpanel does not display content - " Connection lost! Trying to reconnect…".
Is this usecase supported? Do I have to configure something?
To clear things up, this message is displayed when the SSE connection (to the /rest/events) used for server-pushed upadates is not working, perhaps unsurprisingly they can’t get through some reverse proxies. There should be additional info in your browser’s developer tools (Console and Network tabs).
just checking: calling http://<ip_of_OH2>:8080/rest/items works?
Your vhost setup is the same as mine and I have no problems whatsoever to access HABPanel from a remote location using reverse proxying…
By the way: you could always change the port that OH2 listens to from 8080 to 80 if you want.
