A while ago I posted a guide how to set up nginx as a reverse proxy in front of tomcat to run ORDS and APEX. See the post here.
An open problem was that APEX was still thinking it runs on port 80 with http, while nginx was running https on port 443.
Just recently I talked about changing the /ords URL to something else, now I want to show another way to manipulate the URL.
I always disliked deploying multiple ORDS instances, just to provide different paths to the same DB. This happened out of legacy or SEO purposes so far.
Now let’s set up a simple reverse proxy to achieve any URL structure you want for your APEX server.
