Builds a basic nginx server that proxies incoming SSL calls to a target host
(usually another Docker container).

DOMAIN: domain in the SSL certificate (default value:
TARGET_PORT: target port for the reverse proxy (default value:
TARGET_HOST: target host for the reverse proxy (default value:
CLIENT_MAX_BODY_SIZE: maximum size of client uploads (default value:
Certificates and CA location
The SSL certificate is generated using a own-ROOT-ca that is available in the
/etc/nginx/ca, you may use Docker volumes to share the CAs with
other containers, so they can trust the installed certificate.
Using own Certificate
You can use existing SSL certificates for your
by connecting an volume onto
/etc/nginx/certs with following files inside:
key.pem: private key file
cert.pem: certificate file
The certificate generator will check on existing
key.pem and abort.
