    Good day
    I don't know if it is something possible to be done with ISPConfig

    I have an old web server that is hosting a few site that I cannot add SSL certificats
    I cannot move the site to a newest server because of configuration restriction
    I would like to know if it's possible to create a ''web site'' with no content in ISPconfig, add a let's encrypt certificat and have ISPconfig acting as a proxy for the old web server so it would display all the content from the old site under the SSL certificat

    Thank you

    Yes, that is called a reverse proxy and can be setup in ispconfig.

    WOW thank you for the quick response
    I found this threat about that

    Just to make is this the right config to setup with Apache on (CentOS Linux 7.9.2009) ISPConfig 3.2.8p1
    All the other config I found are for NGIX

    Under the "Redirect" tab:
    Rewrite HTTP to HTTPS is enabled
    Under the "Options" tab:

    Apache Directives:

    ProxyPreserveHost On
    ProxyPass / http://x,x,x,x/ (IP of the original server)
    ProxyPassReverse / http://x.x.x.x/ (IP of the original server)
    <Location />
    Order deny,allow
    Allow from all
