About this image

This image is based on alang/nginx
which makes minor modifications to the official nginx image.

In this image nginx is configured to serve static assets from /var/www/static (volume) as well as
forward request to another server (it does act as a reverse proxy).

Nginx will respond to all request against the URL path /static.
If no such asset is found the request will be forwarded.

All other requests will be forwarded to the server with the DNS name web on the port 8000.

Requests which are forwarded to contain the X-Forwarded-For, X-Forwarded-Host and X-Forwarded-Proto header.

The image does export port 80.

It has a volume defined to serve static resources at /var/www/static.

How to use this image

docker run -v /some/content:/var/www/static:ro --link web alang/nginx_rproxy

        # <- /etc/nginx/proxy/*.conf goes here
    location /static {
