Subject Fwd: a better nginx proxy config
Date Fri, 05 Sep 2014 18:59:24 GMT
Discussing a better nginx config than the one currently in the wiki:
enable proxy_redirect so any CouchDB operations requiring a redirect
work properly, for example _utils -> _utils/ :

 /db {
     rewrite /db/(.*) /$1 break;
     proxy_buffering off;
     proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $remote_addr;
     proxy_set_header Host $proxy_host;
     proxy_pass http://localhost:5984;
     proxy_redirect http://localhost:5984 http://$host/db;
 }

Hi Daniel,

thanks for the info. Would you please post this in a new thread in dev@
with the question to confirm the behaviour by other users and devs? If
acknowledged, we should update the wiki page (and move it to the new cwiki
:) ).

Thanks a lot!

Cheers

Andy
