Reset Your Cookies
When changing the JFrog Container Registry context path in Apache make sure to reset your browser's host and session cookies.
Having a stale context path value cached by cookies can lead to inconsistent issue with the user interface such as
Not authorized to instantiate class errors when switching between tabs.
Configuring Your Tomcat
If you are using a dedicated Tomcat rather than the one that is bundled with the JFrog Container Registry download zip file, you must configure the AJP connector located, by default, under
Please refer to Apache Tomcat Configuration Reference for more configuration options.
Configuring Apache With a Custom JFrog Container Registry Path
You can configure Apache using the same setup as above but here the goal is to have
http://artifactory.yourdomain.com/repository/ as the root URL for JFrog Container Registry as follows:
Using an HTTP Proxy
When running JFrog Container Registry with Tomcat, we recommend that you set up Apache to proxy JFrog Container Registry via HTTP.
You must configure redirects correctly using the PassReverse directive, and also set the base URL in JFrog Container Registry itself so that the UI links show up correctly.
The sample virtual host assumes that the Tomcat HTTP connector runs on port 8081.
Ensuring HTTP Redirect Works Correctly
For HTTP redirects to work, you must set a PassReverse directive on Apache, otherwise the underlying container base URL is passed in redirects
In the example below it is set to
Setting Up Apache HTTPS
Setting up Apache HTTP server using AJP Protocol
JFrog Container Registry installations do not include the AJP connector in JFrog Container Registry’s Tomcat server.xml file (i.e. under $ARTIFACTORY_HOME/tomcat/conf/server.xml).
To use AJP connector, the <Connector port="8019" protocol="AJP/1.3" sendReasonPhrase="true"/> should be added manually to the server.xml file under <Service name="Catalina">.
Upgraded JFrog Container Registry environments will be unchanged provided the server.xml file is copied over.
Notice: AJP connector support will be removed in JFrog Container Registry's next major version (7.0).
You can set up Apache with SSL (HTTPS) as a front end to JFrog Container Registry using either the HTTP or AJP protocol.
If you are not running JFrog Container Registry with Tomcat, then it is recommended to use AJP since it provides the servlet container with all the information about the correct base URL and requires no configuration in JFrog Container Registry.
Using an HTTP Proxy
Configuring Apache With
mod_proxy_ajp Installed and Tomcat
The Apache and Tomcat sample configuration is as described in the section on Apache HTTP Server above under Using AJP.
Configuring a Custom URL Base in JFrog Container Registry
When using an HTTP proxy, the links produced by JFrog Container Registry, as well as certain redirects contain the wrong port and use the
http instead of
Therefore, you must configure a custom base URL as follows:
- On the Admin tab select Configuration | General
Custom URL Base
- Set the Custom URL Base field to the value used to contact JFrog Container Registry on Apache
Please refer to General Configuration for more details about configuring the base URL.
