To add the CORS authorization to the header using Apache, simply add the following line inside either the
<VirtualHost> sections of your server config (usually located in a *.conf file, such as httpd.conf or apache.conf), or within a
<IfModule mod_headers.c> Header set Access-Control-Allow-Origin "*" </IfModule>
To ensure that your changes are correct, it is strongly recommended that you use
apachectl -tto check your configuration changes for errors. After this passes, you may need to reload Apache to make sure your changes are applied by running the command
sudo service apache2 reloador
apachectl -k graceful.
Altering headers requires the use of mod_headers. Mod_headers is enabled by default in Apache, however, you may want to ensure it's enabled by run
Note: you can also use
add rather than
set, but be aware that
add can add the header multiple times, so it's likely safer to use set.
