Reverse proxy NGINX


(Евгений Копьев) #1

Is it possible to do Reverse proxy not on Apache, but on NGINX?

I’m sure it is, but not on ports 80 or 443–at least not without major rework to the current web server package. Is there a particular reason you want it to be done with nginx rather than Apache?

It’s possible but there’s no web UI:

…at the moment, but there’s going to be one soon! A package by @stephdl is available from nethserver-testing repo

You can try it with

 yum --enablerepo=nethserver-testing install nethserver-httpd-proxypass

Please check the nethserver-httpd package is updated as well! /cc @quality_team


Reverse Proxy Foward Domain instead of path?
(Davide Principi) #5

Could you explain a bit more your request? Do you want a better Reverse Proxy support? Or do you need a running Nginx istance on NethServer? What else?

In my network I ozhidaetsya replenishment web servers (Apache, Ngix, IIS) with different domain names, do I need to do reverse proxy caching is desirable and with Let’s Encrypt ssl for all servers, that would be all cerificate was in one place and updated automatically. In this case Nginx is more flexible and faster, so the choice for frontend fell on it.
