NGINX configuration for proxing to websocket/nodejs processs

By , Friday 29th November 2013 11:06 am

Here’s a simple configuration to allow nginx to proxy through to another process including forwarding websocket traffic.

A simple set up currently in use to proxy to a nodejs process which is also serving HTML. I’d like to improve the config so that nginx serves static content, but will look to do that later.

Improvements, suggestions please add to the comments (…and thanks).

server {
    listen 80;
    server_name example.com;
    return 301 https://example.com$request_uri;
}

server {
    listen       443;
    server_name  example.com;

    root /var/www/html/public;

    ssl                  on;
    ssl_certificate      /etc/ssl/private/ssl.cert;
    ssl_certificate_key  /etc/ssl/private/ssl.key;

    ssl_protocols  SSLv2 SSLv3 TLSv1;
    ssl_ciphers  HIGH:!aNULL:!MD5;
    ssl_prefer_server_ciphers   on;

    proxy_connect_timeout 43200000;
    proxy_read_timeout 43200000;
    proxy_send_timeout 43200000;

    if ($ssl_protocol = "") {
        rewrite ^ https://$host$request_uri? permanent;
    }
    try_files $uri @proxysocket;

    location / {
        proxy_pass http://127.0.0.1:3000/;
        proxy_http_version 1.1;
        proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
        proxy_set_header Connection "upgrade";
    }

Apache proxy with digest authentication

By , Sunday 27th March 2011 12:57 pm

This post will quickly show you how to set up proxying with basic authentication using apache.

In my case I wanted to have transmission bit torrent client available over the internet so I could check on the state and adminster torrent downloads (such as the latest fedora release) as required. Transmission itself runs its web client on port 9091 by default. Rather than bother opening up more ports on my firewall and adding the nessecary port forwarding rules I decided I’d just proxy the calls through to transmission via apache using mod_proxy.
