Hosting and deployment

This topic provides you with some guides on how to get your FontoXML Connectors instance running in a production environment. This include guides on how to build a docker image, how to push the built image to a registry and guides on how to deploy that pushed image to a online environment.

SSL offloading

We highly recommend you to run your FontoXML Connectors instance in HTTPS which requires you to set up an SSL offloader. To configure the port on which FontoXML Connectors and/or your SSL offloader runs please see Configure Hosting.

The SSL offloader must forward the protocol (HTTPS://) and the configured port (443 by default). This is required since FontoXML Connectors can order a redirect to a different page for which we have to maintain the correct protocol and port. You can see an example of this in the guide for host on premise.
