How to host your Bullet site as a sub-directory?

If you already have your website on other 3rd party tools and you want to use bullet only for specific use cases like Blog or a knowledge base, you can achieve that using reverse-proxy.

Note: Once you have configured your bullet site in a sub-directory, your internal links will not work in the subdomain. However, there will be no issues in the domain that you have configured.

Step 1: Configuring your Sub-Directory

The first step is to configure your sub-directory in the bullet dashboard.

  • Navigate to the domains section and click on the “Sub-Directory”.
  • Next, Enter the domain name and the sub-directory(Hosting path)details for your site.

Step 2: Setting up reverse proxy

Now we have to set a reverse proxy to your primary domain and the sub-directory. You can use any one of the below options to setup your reverse proxy.

1. Cloudflare workers.

  • Create a new Cloudflare worker, and add the below code.
  • Now, In the 3rd line in the code add the current URL of your bullet site. You will find in your Site settings in your bullet dashboard.
  • Next, In the 4th line of the code add the subrirectory(Hosting path) details you added in the Bullet dashboard.
addEventListener('fetch', (event) => {
    // Add your bullet subdomain below. Avoid trailing slash
    const bulletUrl = new URL(``)
    // Add sub-directory path where you want to see your bullet site in the next line. Avoid trailing slash/
    const subdirectory = "/blog"

    const requestUrl = new URL(event.request.url)
    const pathname = requestUrl.pathname
    if (pathname.startsWith(`${subdirectory}/`) || pathname === subdirectory) {
        event.respondWith(fetch(`${bulletUrl.origin}${pathname.replace(subdirectory, "")}`, event.request).then((response) => {
            const clonedResponse = new Response(response.body, response);
            if (clonedResponse.status === 308) {
                const redirectLocation = clonedResponse.headers.get("location");
                const destination = (subdirectory + redirectLocation + "/").replace('//', '/');
                redirectLocation && clonedResponse.headers.set("location", destination);
            return clonedResponse;
    } else {
  • After creating the worker and deploying, add the Worker Route, and set the path to*

2. Nginx.

  • Add the below snippet in your ngnix configuration(.conf) file.
  • update and replace your placeholder proxy_pass details to your bullet domain.
location /blog/ {    
proxy_pass https://{{bullet-subdomain}};

3. Next.js

  • Add the Below Code in your next.config.js file.
  • Replace the placeholder data in the below code with appropriate details.
// next.config.js
/** @type {import('next').NextConfig} */
const config = {
    rewrites() {
        const bulletUrl = new URL(
        return [
                source: '/blog',
                destination: `${bulletUrl}`,
            },            // match all paths with extension eg .xml, .json etc.            {
                source: '/blog/:slug(.*\\.[a-zA-Z]{2,5}$)',
                destination: `${bulletUrl}/:slug`,
            },// match all paths starting with /blog
                source: '/blog/:path*',
                destination: `${bulletUrl}/:path*/`,
module.exports = config

By default, next.js will redirect url with trailing slash. Because of this there will be a redirect for every blog post. To avoid this, we can add the below code in next.config.js file.

trailingSlash: true

4. Netlify _redirects file

/blog/* https://<bullet-subdomain> 200

5. Apache

You need the proxy proxy_http and proxy_html modules enabled. To do this, run sudo a2enmod proxy proxy_http proxy_html.

ProxyPass /blog https://<bullet-subdomain>
ProxyPassReverse /blog http://<bullet-subdomain>
