How do you feel about community here: I worry that F5 would have an interest at keeping people in the dark so that they sign up for commercial options with support. I hope that's not the case. Nginx seems more straight forward than HaProxy, and more robust than pound, so I'm sticking with it for now.

Wishes of peace and health to all of you, from Oregon.]]>

My name is Karel and I come from Europe, however I'd like to consider myself as a citizen of the world.

I'm a completely self taught wanna-be linux admin and have been messing about with servers/networks on a hobbyist level for quite some time.
On a professional level I've been working for a large MSP as a backup/storage administrator for over a year now; prior to that I was a DC ops guy.

I'm here as I've been learning NGINX for the last couple of days and this seems like a good place to get help.
Nice meeting you everybody.]]>

Completely new to both web servers and nginx in particular.
I've been trying to host my static web page that I've built with hugo. I've tested it locally using hugo server and all the contents are loading properly.

When I upload my site to /var/www/mysite/ and try to serve it with nginx, only the initial index.html within my site dir is loaded. Each other request is 404_not found.
Reason being is each other resource besides the main index.html is being referred to by nginx as /server_name/server_name/...

Example I have an 'About' tab, that should be served from http://anna.home/about however nginx is redirecting to http://anna.home/anna.home/about which doesn't exist hence the 404.

I'm pretty sure it's a simple fix for somebody who's touched nginx before but I've been pulling my hair due to this one for a good few hours..

limit_conn_zone $binary_remote_addr zone=addr:10m;

The nginx webserver hosts a modsecurity plugin and sits behind Cloudfront and AWS shield and a load balancer with additional custom defined intrusion detection. So we are taking care of DOS, BOT attack and rate related type of attacks.

We see these limiting settings now as redundant. Anyone see any reason not to remove these settings?]]>

I'm using Jmeter to send the messages to a server. When the sending rate less then or equals the defined rate in the nginx.conf everything works fine.

nginx running inside docker on rhel

I've also tried to set the client_max_body_size to 0, move it on the server level , add client_body_buffer_size 128k; same result.

i'm also getting 503, which is as expected.

I've also connected Fiddler to follow the request/responses, for basically the same request I'm getting 202 and 413 response,

Appreciate your help,

I am exploring the features of Nginx features and doing a POC with all the possible use cases. If all goes well, probably there would be a huge investment on the Nginx to use it our cloud based architecture.

Currently exploring an option on TCP SSL termination on Nginx for a SSL connection from Java JDBC client. Facing issues, any guidance would be speed up my POC and complete it.

I'm using nginx on Windows 10 and using the opensource version.
