04b) Check if pt-wings work

In this section, we'll verify that our config.yml works as expected. Then we'll connect our 'pt-wings' container to the 'pterodactyl_nw' network we created in our config file.

Restarting the pt-wings

  1. Finally, we can restart our pt-wings container:

  1. We should now examine the container's logs. To do so, navigate to the Logs menu in the pt-wings container's Details.

  2. Something along the lines of this should be there:

  1. Find the pterodactyl_nw network and select Connect.

Check if the reverse proxy work

  1. To see if the pt-wings reverse proxying is working as intended, load up your https://pt-wings.domain.com site up in a new tab in your browser.

  2. In my case, that would be https://pt-wings.engels.zip.

  3. It should give you this message:

"The required authorization heads were not present in the request."
  1. Oddly enough, this means that it's working as intended.

On to the next step!
