How can i attach or point my external domain address to my container? Using rancher
- install Load Balancer Service into your Rancher Server
- inside it you can add any domain name with any port to forward it to your container
- choose the container from the list and choose the port inside the container.
- from your DNS [in my case I’m using Cloudflare ] , point the A record to your domain to be the IP for the server which holds the Load Balancer container.
@ayman2nov thank you for the reply i will try this method, does this work on remote host environment?
No Problem ,
Yea works good , as Rancher uses it’s own internal network , so all the containers can see each other’s internal IPs as they are in the same network
@ayman2nov all permalinks/pages should work as well? i’m running a webapp using rancher server.,
offtopic: i have another question, how can i access the files in the container using rancher? for uploading/downloading/editing files.
@08ski11s yes , all will work normally .
for the second question : as I understand you have a web application inside a container and you need to have something like ftp service .
you also can add an ftp server inside the container and enable the port inside the load balancer , so you connect from outside world to the files inside the container .
hope this solution helps you
thank you very much to your response, i will try this right away
@ayman2nov follow-up questions:
what IP should i use to add in the A record to point the domain address?
it will be the real IP for the server which you run the load balancer on
