This section helps you configure Sonar if you want to run Sonar behind a proxy. This can be done for security concerns or to consolidate multiple disparate applications.
Running Sonar behind an Apache Proxy
We assume that you've already installed Apache 2 with module mod_proxy, that Sonar is running and available on http://privates_sonar_host:sonar_port/ and that you want to configure a Virtual Host for www.public_sonar.com.
If the url of the Sonar server must have a context like http://www.public_sonar.com/sonar_context, in that case the following line must be uncommented in the sonar.properties configuration file to prevent using the Apache mod_rewrite :
And of course, the definition of the Apache virtual server must also be slightly updated :
Apache configuration is going to vary based on your own application's requirements and the way you intend to expose Sonar to the outside world. If you need more details about Apache HTTPd and mod_proxy, please see http://httpd.apache.org.
Running Sonar behind Nginx
At this point, edit the Nginx configuration file. Include the following to expose Sonar at http://www.somecompany.com/ :
Nginx configuration is going to vary based on your own application's requirements and the way you intend to expose Sonar to the outside world. If you need more details about Nginx, please see http://nginx.org.
