How can I serve a webflow.com blog under a subdirectory of my site using cloudfront/lambda@edge?

0

I have a website served by cloudfront at https://mysite.com using S3 origin.

I have a webflow blog project using a custom domain pointing to http://blog.mysite.com via CNAME in route53.

How can I serve the webflow blog project directly under https://mysite.com/blog ?

Using the subdomain https://blog.mysite.com is not preferable for SEO reasons (but the subdomain is live and operational pointing to the webflow project)

Can I achieve this using lambda@edge?

You should be able to do this in CloudFront using multiple CacheBehaviors and Origins. The default CacheBehavior stays as now, pointing to your S3 Origin. Add a 2nd CacheBehavior with a PathPattern "blog/*" pointing to the Custom Origin URL for your webflow blog.

  • Hey @skinsman, thank you for the suggestion! I tried implementing this however when I visit https://mysite.com/blog, it redirects to https://blog.mysite.com/blog. What I want to do is have the blog actually render under mysite.com/blog but maybe that's not possible unless I'm self hosting the assets?

    To get the above working I created a CacheBehavior with PathPattern: blog/* and custom origin with domain blog.mysite.com

  • Borg, you did well and it should rewrite, not redirect. So the user should still see https://mysite.com/blog.

    This is a standard CloudFront feature.
