APi on own domain possible? was created by dbode
Hi,

according to the docs, the api seems to be always on www.mydomain.tld/api/v1
Is there any way to have the api available on e.g. api.mydomain.tld ?

A simple Alias in .htaccess doesn't seem to work here.

Any advices?

Right now that is not possible out of the box because the URL path is hard-coded to accommodate potential future future versioning.

/api/v1/

The issue with running it at the root domain level is that cAPI loads the Joomla application *through* the Slim application and the routing is completely independent of the Joomla router.

There is another option though. I think you could use a CNAME to mask www.mydomain.com.tld/api/v1 as api.mydomain.tld at the DNS zone level. I have not tried this yet but it should work (as long as I haven't hard-coded /api/v1 paths!).

We can follow-up in the support area if you need further assistance with such a solution.
