Re: [EP-tech] Problem after changing port number

Hi Herbert,

So assuming you want to redirect from 8080 to 80, you need something like the config below.  As EPrints won't know anything about port 8080, unless $c->{port} in the archive's cfg/cfg.d/10_core.pl is still set to 8080.  You will need to configure this in Apache2's config directory.  I assume you are running either Ubuntu of Debian (as Jessie is a codename for a Debian release).  So create the filename redirect_8080.conf in /etc/apache2/sites-available/ and add this config (change to match your HOSTNAME):

Listen 8080
<VirtualHost *:8080>
        RewriteEngine on
        RewriteRule ^/(.*) http://HOSTNAME/$1 [R=301,NE,L]

Then run the following commands as the root user:

a2ensite redirect_8080
apache2ctl configtest
apache2ctl restart

This should introduce a redirect for any URL that starts http://HOSTNAME:8080 ; to just http://HOSTNAME, which it sounds like you have now configured.  I assume that you have run or re-run

EPRINTS_PATH/bin/generate_apacheconf --system --replace

Where EPRINTS_PATH may be /opt/eprints3 or /usr/share/eprints. If you have not be sure to do this before running the two apache2ctl commands above.  If still still does not fix your problem.  Please send the output of the following command, run as the root user:

source /etc/apache2/envvars && apache2 -S

I am running an Eprint3 server on ubuntu  jessie. After migrating from a
previous installation it is running on port 80. Several service
providers have caught the change, but, as I recently found out, a number
of external sites listing the server still show the previous port number

How can I make apache2 redirect the old URL to the present one? I tried
unsuccessfully to use a nginx reverse proxy. It seems I need the
document root of the current installation. How do I find it? Or is there
another method?

Thanks for any advice.
