    We only allow https access to cPanel and WHM. I've got a wildcard SSL Certificate and want to create two proxies :

    1) https // cpanel.hostname.mydomain.tld on port 443
    that proxies to : https // hostname.mydomain.tld:2083

    2) https // webmail.hostname.mydomain.tld on port 443
    that proxies to : https // hostname.mydomain.tld:2096

    Is there an easy way to do this with litespeed ?

    The reason why I need this is that somes internet suppliers block https ports above 1024, and some wifi hostspots do this too. If I could get this working, I would be able to supply URL's to my customers who can connect to ports 2083 and 2096.

    not easy. the difficult part is the SSL backend which is not supported in LSWS proxy. LSWS can proxy (LSWS frontend can be SSL) to a non-SSL backend (port 2082, 2095). if cpanel doesn't do redirect, then it should be ok. you can disable auto redirect in cpanel (WHM => Tweakings => Redirect) if allows.

    The problem here is that cPanel with Apache does this :

    https // webmail.clientdomain.tld

    Shows an SSL error but once the certificate accepted lets you log into the webmail

    On a litepseed cPanel server, it either redirects to port 2096 if the client doesn't have a SSL certificate shows an error 500 page if the client has got an SSL certificate.

    Is there some way we could at least replecate how Apache runs on cPanel ?
