I would like to create a repo especially for peertube apache config respecting the default nginx peertube config.
who are intrested I start it please thumb up.

I would like to create a repo especially for peertube apache config respecting the default nginx peertube config. who are intrested I start it please thumb up.

I, for myself, installed both apache & nginx on the machine, and this works very well, with the help of a port (443) multiplexer

interesting, but I want to avoid another layer of software and offer an apache conf from peertube nginx default

@ROBERT-MCDOWELL

interesting, but I want to avoid another layer of software and offer an apache conf from peertube nginx default

I agree, I prefer to keep things as simple as possible as well.

Attached the full apache config which is the closest of the nginx peertube default

Thank you

At the moment I do a fresh PeerTube v5.0.1 installation and I ran into these issues:

ProxyRequests not allowed in <Location> context

If I remove it everything looks fine so far, but when I try to access the site I get this error:

I have already checked the production.yaml, which looks fine to me

And the access rights for /config are fine too. At the moment I have no idea, where to look further.

@ROBERT-MCDOWELL My pleasure, thank you for your support.

Edit:
ipv6 can be a pain sometimes.

<Location "/">
                ProxyPass http://[::1]:9000/ flushpackets=on keepalive=on enablereuse=on
                ProxyPassReverse http://[::1]:9000/
</Location>

This did not work for me but if I change it to:

<Location "/">
                ProxyPass http://localhost:9000/ flushpackets=on keepalive=on enablereuse=on
                ProxyPassReverse http://localhost:9000/
</Location>

Everything works perfect. The wired thing is, that 127.0.0.1 does not work.

But I guess that's a special issue of my environment, because my server is managed with Plesk, which
automatically generates the basic Virtualhost and it is missing the ipv6 localhost entry [::1].

ROBERT-MCDOWELL commented Jan 6, 2023

FYI ProxyRequest off must be out Location, on the example above I even put it out of VirtualHost
and it was missing an "S" at ProxyPass, I added ProxyPassReverse too in '/' Location to avoid werid behaviors.
I aslo modified the websocket redirection to ipv6 like
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ ws://[::1]:9000$1 [L]

Great config, thank you so much. I am running into this though when frontpage of PT is loaded:

Cannot retrieve OAuth Client credentials: Getting client tokens for host 127.0.0.1:9000 is forbidden. Ensure you have correctly configured PeerTube (config/ directory), in particular the "webserver" section.

I can't really see anything wrong with either config (Apache, PT, and so on ...)

If I open web developer tools, I do see a 403 being returned for this request: "https://mysite.com/api/v1/oauth-clients/local"

@ROBERT-MCDOWELL
Copy link

check your firewall

@joho1968

Not sure if I was unclear, but I do get the actual PT frontpage. And the 403 error seen in the browser console cannot be from a firewall, as 403 is a web server status code meaning Access Denied, if I'm not entirely wrong.

@ROBERT-MCDOWELL
Copy link

check if your folders/files are everbody accessible and have the peertube user as owner.

@joho1968

joho1968 commented Feb 13, 2023

Well, I changed the bottom part of the config to read:

  ProxyPreserveHost On
  ProxyRequests On

  # Websocket
  RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^/plugins/[^/]+(/[^/]+)?/ws/ [OR]
  RewriteCond %{HTTP:Upgrade} =websocket [NC]
  RewriteRule ^(.*)$ ws://127.0.0.1:9000$1 [L]

  <Location "/">
    ProxyPass http://127.0.0.1:9000/ flushpackets=on keepalive=on enablereuse=on
    ProxyPassReverse http://127.0.0.1:9000/
  </Location>

And now it works as intended. Thank you for your work and for your speedy response.

maybe the oauth plugin is not set to accept local ipv6...

Yeah, quite possibly. It is, however, working now.

The only problem left is with CORS. It seems I cannot "embed" PT videos in pages on a specific site (not the same domain).

@ROBERT-MCDOWELL
Copy link

CORS is not present since it's a very personal choice.

@joho1968

CORS is not present since it's a very personal choice.

OK. If I comment out all of these, it works:

# Header always set Access-Control-Allow-Origin      "*" 
# Header always set Access-Control-Allow-Credentials "true"
# Header always set Access-Control-Allow-Headers     "Retry-After"
# Header always set Access-Control-Allow-Methods     "GET, OPTIONS"
# Header always set Access-Control-Allow-Headers     "Range,DNT,X-CustomHeader,Keep-Alive,User-Agent,X-Requested-With,If-Modified-Since,Cache-Control,Content-Type"

@ROBERT-MCDOWELL

indeed, but be aware that "*" allow any website of any domain to embed your peertube videos....

@joho1968
Copy link

I know. That's why I was a bit surprised to see them in your gist 😊 Would it be possible to update your gist with a scenario where PeerTube and (authorized) website can embed video from PT? Like the website is on https://web.domain1.com and PT is on https://video.domain2.com (i.e. it's not a sub-domain).

There also seems to be some confusion, not sure if it's with Apache or the browser(s) I've tried with, but to completely clear the header(s), I seem to need to do this:

    Header always unset Access-Control-Allow-Origin
    Header always unset access-control-allow-origin 

I can't for the life of me figure out what is treating the header string value in a case sensitive manner.

@ROBERT-MCDOWELL
Copy link

i'ts not my gist here so I cannot change anything but my own config I posted here.
I re-read my config above and I noticed that I already set cross domain so theorically you don't have to do anything but copy/paste the config and everything will work. I use it for my server and I can see PT embeded stickers on twitter and else (when you click on it a new window is opening, so you don't watch the video in a embeded manner). Access-Control-Allow-Origin is the right string

I was having problems with the Getting client tokens for host 127.0.0.1:9000 is forbidden message too after copying the above linked configuration for v6. But after reading joho1968's comment I noticed that ProxyPreserveHost On and ProxyRequests On are missing from the gists linked by @ROBERT-MCDOWELL .
After adding them back in everything seems to be working :)
Thanks all for providing the apache config.

@joho1968 I just realize my answer was a little confused, so in my gist here
PeerTube v5: https://gist.github.com/ROBERT-MCDOWELL/0ed82ec304fa76de9ff52cc4a5a49e4c
PeerTube >= v6: https://gist.github.com/ROBERT-MCDOWELL/7a55548d51a82080270b3184cd27ed36
I didn't put any CORS settings since it's not related to PeerTube and very personal as some server admins have their own way to allow or not certain websites and how (from the deprecated x-frame-options or content-security-policy) which is to vast and out of the PeerTube scope, even if the PT nginx conf shows Header set Access-Control-Allow-Origin "*" which is not really secure. But what's the best for you guys? to strictly follow the nginx default conf or a more secure apache one?

@ROBERT-MCDOWELL
Copy link

@joho1968 ok after some reflections I think the best is to strictly follow the nginx default conf so it won't give more confusion and it's up to the skills of the server admin to fix his own security way....

af7567 commented Jan 6, 2024

@ROBERT-MCDOWELL Thanks for the update :)
I didn't realise you had left the Proxy options out on purpose. I thought that peertube only worked with a reverse proxy so I was a bit confused why some of the lines in the original gist for reverse proxy were commented out.

@ROBERT-MCDOWELL
Copy link

I'm on so many different repo and work that I think you are right, PT works as default with a reverse proxy... even if it certainly can work without proxy ;)
