The cherokee-admin binds only to local loopback by default. There are some workarounds:
Create an SSH tunnel. This is the recommended way. In order to do so you must issue the following command:
[email protected]:~$ ssh -L 9090:localhost:9090 remote_IP
After that your terminal will be logged in the remote machine. There you can start the admin. From then on you can access this remote interface through http://localhost:9090. Every request will be forwarded to the remote IP running cherokee-admin.
The -b parameter
Launch cherokee-admin with the -b parameter in order to force it to listen to all the network interfaces.
Copy and paste
Finally you could always install cherokee on your local host, configure it there and then copy the generated cherokee.conf file to the device running the cherokee instance you wanted to set up.
http://mysite.com:8000 follow these steps in your Cherokee admin web environment:
First go to the vServers tab and create a virtual server with name
a.mysite.com and give it a document root, e.g.
Then link to the sources tab and create a new information source by clicking the 'plus' icon. Enter
a.mysite.com as nick and
mysite:8000 as connection.
Go back to the vServers tab. After making sure that the
a.mysite.com server is selected check that the host match method is set to 'match nickname'.
In the behaviour tab select the default directory and in the handler tab select HTTP Reverse Proxy from the handler dropdown list. Then select Round Robin as balancer in the Back-end Server section.
In the section Assign Information Sources section select
a.mysite.com as application server.
Then save and restart Cherokee.
http://a.mysite.com will be redirected automatically to
http://mysite.com:8000. And, when your site becomes more popular, you can add more application servers to
