Example of an Apache HTTPD Configuration for Bitcoin JS Remote

am assuming a little knowledge about Apache httpd. You had better read on Apache httpd directives: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/directives.html. Of course, this is only an example of many other configurations

Assuming your bitcoin.conf file includes: rpcuser=myuser rpcpassword=mypass

First, generate a suitable file for Basic Authentification. See man htpasswd or execute htpasswd -b -c my_prefer_filename myuser mypass

Set following Apache directives in the proper context, i.e. server or virtual host configuration: AuthType Basic AuthName "Bitcoin Access" AuthUserFile my_prefer_filename Require user myuser Order deny,allow Allow from all

Assuming you want to access Bitcoin JS Remote with http://mydomain/jbc Alias /jbc pathabs_to_bitcoin-js-remote ProxyPass /lbc/ http://127.0.0.1:8332/ # ProxyPassReverse is not required because bitcoind talks pure # JSON, i.e no HTTP Headers with URIs are generated by bitcoind # ProxyPassReverse /lbc/ http://127.0.0.1:8332/

Above ProxyPass directive is asuming you are set the RPC.url field to "/lbc/" into "settings.json" file, located in the bitcoin-js-remote directory. See the settings.json_sample file for proper syntax.

A variety of configurations are feasible:

# If RPC.url is an absolute path (i.e. RPC.url : /lbc/),
# bitcoind at 127.0.0.1 shall be accessed by http://mydomain/jbc/
ProxyPass /lbc/ http://127.0.0.1:8332/
#
# If RPC.url is a relative path (i.e. RPC.url : lbc/),
# bitcoind at 127.0.0.1 shall be accessed by http://mydomain/jbc/lbc/
ProxyPass lbc/ http://127.0.0.1:8332/
# 
# Apache can also proxy your access to any other IP by
# accessing to http://mydomain/jbc
ProxyPass /lbc/ http://www.worldbank.org:8332/

Please, note you are not required to set into the settings.json file the pair rcpuser/rcppassword. The required header with Basic Authentication is automatically generated by Apache when proxing, thanks for the above Auth directives.

Set RPC.user=rcpuser and RPC.password=rcppassword in the settings.json file if you are not able to configure your Apache webser; for instance, people using hosting instead of virtual or dedicated server. But, please, keep in mind settings.json file can be read by everybody: http://mydomain/jbc/settings.json

That's all. Restart your Apache web server.

Other interesting Apache directives:

To redirect all HTTP to HTTPS (of course, you need a well-configured ssl site). !!! SSL access is extremely recommended to protect your Bitcoin data. RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI}

To avoid your log file from flooding SetEnvIf Request_URI "^/jbc/" dontlog SetEnvIf Request_URI "^/lbc/" dontlog CustomLog myfile.log combined env=!dontlog

Finally, if you go in trouble, check proper access to bitcoin daemon with curl: curl --trace-time --trace-ascii - \ --data-binary '{"jsonrpc": "1.0", "id":"curltest", "method": "getinfo", "params": [] }' \ --header 'content-type: text/plain;'\ http://myuser:mypass@127.0.0.1:8332/
