Hi there,

We have installed Odoo v8 on a DigitalOcean server.  We would like to be able to access our installation of Odoo using a subdomain that is hosted on a separate cPanel server.

For Example:
http://odoo.mywebsite.com will pull up the Odoo installation located at http://xxx.xxx.xx.xx:8072

Does anyone know how to accomplish this?

There are 3 ways this could be accomplished.

  1. Via a redirect from the cpanel server (htaccess, php script, html redirect)
  2. By proxying the requests trough the cpanel server (mod_proxy or mod_rewrite with proxy options)
  3. By assigning an A record to www.xxx.yyy.zzz and changing the default port for odoo (or not and using a proxy on the same server).

Pick your poison ;)

thank you for the suggestions. Do you know of any tutorials to accomplish any of the 3 methods you propose?
