# Deployment

Have a look at the Laravel deployment docs (opens new window) and make sure CORS is opened up.

# Redirecting Magento to Rapidez

The Magento frontend should not be accessible anymore as you're using Rapidez. But GraphQL, media, admin, etc should be reachable. Create a redirect rule to accomplish that, for example with Nginx:

location ~* ^\/(?!(rest|graphql|static|media|admin)(\/|$)) {
    return 301 $scheme://your-rapidez-url.com$request_uri;

Make sure the change the admin location and url. Place this below the Magento location directives, for example here in the sample Nginx config (opens new window).

# Secure Elasticsearch

You've to secure your Elasticsearch instance so other people can't manipulate the data in it as it needs to be exposed for Reactive Search.

  • Enable security in elasticsearch.yml with: xpack.security.enabled: true
  • Change http.cors.allow-origin to your domain
  • Restart Elasticsearch (with Docker: docker restart rapidez_elasticsearch)
  • Setup a password with bin/elasticsearch-setup-passwords auto (or use interactive to choose the passwords yourself, with Docker prepend docker exec rapidez_elasticsearch)
  • Add your credentials to .env
  • Create a proxy (with SSL) on a subdomain
location / {
        proxy_pass http://localhost:9200;

# Kibana

  • Repeat this step for Kibana which should be running on port 5601
  • Set the credentials in kibana.yml
elasticsearch.username: "elastic"
elasticsearch.password: "YOUR-PASSWORD"
  • Login to Kibana and go to Management > Roles
  • Add a new role web. It only needs one index privilege; use rapidez_* for the indices and read as privilege.
  • Create an user web, password rapidez and the web role
  • Add the url to your .env
ELASTICSEARCH_URL=https://web:[email protected]

# No Kibana

Setting up the roles and passwords without Kibana is possible too. To do so run the following commands:

# Create the role `web` that may read `rapidez_*` indexes
curl -X POST "localhost:9200/_security/role/web?pretty" -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -d'
  "indices": [
      "names": [ "rapidez_*" ],
      "privileges": ["read"]
' -u username:password

Then create the user.

# Create the user `web` with password `rapidez`
curl -X POST "localhost:9200/_security/user/web?pretty" -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -d'
  "password" : "rapidez",
  "roles" : [ "web" ]
' -u username:password

Finally add the url to your .env

ELASTICSEARCH_URL=https://web:[email protected]

# Magento 2 Docker


This is only needed if you'd like to run the Magento 2 demo webshop on a server.

Just proxy everything to a subdomain and use that domain as MAGENTO_URL in the .env. With Laravel Forge this is really easy; just create another website on your server, setup SSL and edit the Nginx config

location / {
    proxy_redirect off;
    proxy_read_timeout 60;
    proxy_connect_timeout 60;
    proxy_buffer_size 128k;
    proxy_buffers 4 256k;
    proxy_busy_buffers_size 256k;

    proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto $scheme;
    proxy_set_header Host $host;

Use the MySQL credentials from the container in the .env
