FAQ for Linode

I want to change my owncast domain name

You need to add the new domain to the reverse proxy config in /etc/caddy/Caddyfile

  1. Connect via ssh to your server
  2. Edit the file via sudo nano /etc/caddy/Caddyfile

It should look like this:

your.old.domain {
	encode gzip
  • Change your.old.domain to your new domain name
  • Save the file CTRL+s
  • Close the editor CTRL+x
  1. Restart the reverse proxy systemctl restart caddy
  2. Wait up to a few minutes for your new certificate to be generated
