We are setting up a landing page in Marketo:
I wanted the above Marketo landing page to appear under a pathname on Onvia.com through using a symlink
- So if you type in the following URL www.onvia.com/analytics the Marketo landing page would appear
In order to do this, I would need to create the subdomain info.onvia.com. Will this mess up my other landing pages under the info.onvia.com?
Sure it will. you cannot have both a CNAME and a sub domain that use the same subdomain info.onvia.com
Your question is kind of confusing because if you want www.example.com/pathname to display the content of info.example.com/page.html, there's no reason to point info.example.com anywhere other than Marketo. In fact, if you changed it, it would never work, since www needs to read from Mkto!
It sounds like what you want is a simple proxy ("symlink" has no relevance here). A capable sysadmin could set this up instantly.
Yes, that's exactly what I'm trying to do:
I would like www.onvia.com/analytics to display the content of a Marketo landing page info.onvia.com/BobIsMyPage.html
How would I go about doing that?
Depends on what webserver you're using. For IIS, ARR. For Apache, mod_proxy. If you're already using a CDN or other reverse proxy (Squid/Varnish) that's where you'd configure it. In all cases it's easy stuff, though if you don't manage your server you'll have to find the right person. This does jump the wall between IT and SaaS so everyone needs to be on the same page.
So I need to create a mod_proxy to have www.onvia.com/analytics display the content of a Marketo landing page info.onvia.com/BobIsMyPage.htm
I'd say "Install mod_proxy and configure it to proxy /analytics" but yes.
I confirmed that mod_proxy is installed on our server.
So I just need to configure the mod_proxy to have www.onvia.com/analytics display the content of a Marketo landing pageinfo.onvia.com/BobIsMyPage.htm
