Is it possible to share HTTP and HTTPS ports at the same time?

Jump to solution

I've been trying to check is it possible to set both HTTP and HTTPS running at the same time, something like with URLs below.

http://alfresco.domain.com

https://alfresco.domain.com

My co-worker is developing a client for Alfresco and he would need to test that the client is working with both HTTP and HTTPS.

I've got alfresco 5.2 running on URL http://alfresco.domain.com:8080
Server is Ubuntu 16.04 with Apache2 installed.

My understanding is that I need to configure alfresco-global.properties as in document https://docs.alfresco.com/5.2/tasks/configure-ssl-prod.html but in this document there's only information about sharing https port.
Is it possible to share port 80 and 443 at the same time?

Other option what I'm thinking is to use URL http://alfresco.domain.com:8080 for HTTP testing as this way the user/client is connecting straight to tomcat. For HTTPS I'd configure as instructed in the document above and use URL https://alfresco.domain.com

I'm still not sure if it's possible to share both protocols at the same time, but I can access with both HTTP and HTTPS Alfresco 5.2 running on Ubuntu 16.04 with these steps.
