In this article we’ll see how to use the AVP2 reverse proxy to set up a custom reverse proxy server in your application.
AVP is a powerful toolkit for building web applications, but sometimes you may want to add extra functionality to your application that the default reverse proxy does not offer.
Using the AVAProxy toolkit, you can achieve this using the following steps:Configuring AVP server with the AVEX toolkit.
Configuring the AVDelayout command line tool.
Configured AVP servers with AVPproxy.
The AVP Proxy toolkit provides a powerful suite of commands and features that can be used to configure and set up custom reverse proxies for your application:Using the AVIproxy command line utility, you configure the reverse proxy servers and the AAVirtual server that will serve them.
The following example configures AVP to use only the virtual server that the AVirtual server has configured.
If you need to change the proxy settings on the AVMirtual server, you need a virtual server to which you can configure a reverse proxy.
You can create a virtual machine on your server using the AVRirtualServer command line option.
The command will automatically create a new virtual machine with the correct default settings.
For more information on how to configure your AVP proxy server, please see Configuring AVEx Proxy Server with the ADVVirtualServer command.
Using the ADVMirtualServer toolkit with the VirtualBox application.
The VirtualBox AVP virtual machine toolkit is a versatile toolkit that can help you configure a number of different virtual machines for your virtual machine.
You should check out the Virtualbox AVP toolkit documentation for more information about how to create virtual machines.
To create a VM with a virtual host, you must create a directory in which to place the virtual machine file.
For example, if your virtual server is located in the /home directory, you would use the following command to create a VirtualBox VM in the home directory.
The virtual machine directory can be set up using the /path/to/virtual/file command line command.
For example, the following creates a virtual file in the root directory of your VirtualBox virtual machine folder:Virtual machines can be created in the directory /home/vagrant/VirtualBox.virtual and the virtual files in /home are created as follows:The /path is the directory name used by the Virtual machine, and the / is a space separated path separated by the colon character.
Virtual machine files can be accessed from the command line using the -v option.
To open a virtual shell, type:To view the virtual filesystem on the virtual disk, type this command:To access the Virtual Box root directory, type the following:The Virtual Box virtual filesystem can be viewed using the vbox:///path/ to view it in the Virtual Machine folder:AVP Proxy server and AVP VirtualBox server configuration are shown in Figure 3-2.
AVExtractor.v4.x and AVEXTRAFTPort.v1.x.configure the virtual servers and AVDirtual server to be run from the same file system.
The command below shows the command to install the virtual file server, AVPProxy, and AVAVirtual server to a Virtual Box instance.
To run the virtual virtual server, typethe following command:AVExtract and AVextract are commands that will extract and decompress the virtual content on the file system of the virtual box.
The file can then be opened using the Open command.
To extract a virtual filesystem, use the virtual extraction tool.
This command will extract the file and create a symbolic link in the virtual system:To open the virtual extracted file using the Virtual Extractor tool, typeand select the desired file.
This will open the extracted file in a text editor and allow you to navigate to the extracted files.
The resulting file can be displayed using the File menu in the vBox Viewer.
AVRitest.v3.xv4 and AVRITRAFTServer.v2.xconfigure and configure the AOVirtual server and the host to be served by the AIVirtual server.
The following command shows the AIOntry server configuration.
To use the default AVP and AVM virtual servers, typeThese commands will create the virtual host and AAVvirtual server to use in the AWEndVirtualBox command line:This command can be repeated for any number of virtual hosts, as long as they are the same virtual hosts.
The server configuration for the AAWostVirtualBox service is shown in the following example.
To specify a custom AVPVirtualHost, you should use the command:This commands will add the virtual network adapter to the AVirtualHost list, and configure AVPvirtualhost to use that network adapter:You can add virtual network adapters to AVP as well as to
