I've been trying my hand at the Joplin server for the last day. Because I had no previous experience with Docker, it all took a while accordingly. The whole thing is now running on a Raspberry Pi 3B+. I put an Apache webserver with Certbot certificate in front of it and installed a reverse proxy for port 22300.
Now the problem: The normal website is accessible with SSL, but as soon as I use the URL to the Joplin server (/joplin), the page is HTTP.
Can anyone help me with this or do I need to provide something else?
I am in no way an expert on this but does
JOPLIN_BASE_URL in your
.env file specify
No, it was not, the login page is now with HTTPS. Thanks for that already! But now I have the problem that Firefox gives me an SSL error after clicking on "login":
I guess I have to change something in the Apache configuration...but I don't really know what...
I did get this working when the server first came out but my reverse proxy (using a LOT of cut and paste from the Interweb) was using NGINX so there is nothing I can share to help.
Is the proxy on the same machine as Joplin server? I ask as I am wondering was address your reverse proxy is passing off to.
Edit: Forget that. You are getting the login page so I guess that it must be right...
Too bad, but maybe for other people: I did set up apache and then let certbot do it's thing. It created a file called
000-default-le-ssl.conf in my
sites-enabled directory. There I put the ReverseProxy, because I thought, it should go over SSL and not normal HTTP. Am I thinking wrong? The file looks the following:
ProxyPass /joplin http://127.0.0.1:22300/login
ProxyPassReverse /joplin http://127.0.0.1:22300/login
Maybe that will help?
Why do you map to /login? It should be to just "/". If that can help I have it setup this way:
ProxyPass "/joplin" http://localhost:22300
ProxyPassReverse "/joplin" http://localhost:22300
I mapped it there because otherwise I can't even get to the login page...when I type
domain.com/joplin/login I get as message
Path not found: login. After clicking
Back to the login page I get the above mentioned SSL error again...
Ouch, it's always the little things that you don't even notice at some point...I entered
domain.com:22300 and not
domain.com/joplin as the URL in the
But thanks for the help anyway!
