Using Caddy 2 as Reverse Proxy

WebSocket proxying automatically works in Caddy 2. There is no need to enable this as necessary for Caddy 1, Apache, and NGINX. In addition, Caddy 2 may automatically create and update Let's Encrypt HTTPS certificates.

Example

example.com {
    reverse_proxy photoprism:2342
}

Please refer to the official documentation for further details.

Why use a reverse proxy?

If you install PhotoPrism on a public server outside your home network, please always run it behind a secure HTTPS reverse proxy. Your files and passwords will otherwise be transmitted in clear text and can be intercepted by anyone, including your provider, hackers, and governments. Backup tools and file sync apps may refuse to connect as well.
