Proxy to Admin Listener

    I'm wondering if it is possible to run the admin listener locally only (localhost:7080) and then proxy to it from a secure virtual server to enable outside access to the administration interface.

    I tried setting up an external application (web server) to point to LiteSpeed itself (127.0.0.1:7080) and then creating a context in the vitual host to direct url /litespeed to that address.

    But when I try to access the /litespeed url of the virtual host, I get a "Server Busy" error.

    Is this possible? If so, what might I be doing wrong?

    (The goal here is to have one fewer port open to the outside world.)

    OK, but that approach accesses the admin console on http://<ip>/. I want to access via a *named virtual host* at https://mydomain/litespeed. Is that not possible?

    Thanks.

    Not possible, The URI cannot be changed. you have to use a subdomain for the admin console.

    Noop, admin console will not work with URL prefix linke /litespeed, you have to dedicate a subdomain for that.
