Reverse proxy with nginx

do i need to config reverse proxy even for kibana 5? why its been a manual task?

any better cookbook available?

its not working anyway.. getting 404

Without telling what the config is it's hard to determine whats wrong. About the manual taks, setting up a reverse proxy is a trival task. I use the following config.

set $kibana;
location / {
    proxy_pass              http://$kibana:5601;
    proxy_set_header        Host $host;
    proxy_set_header        Referer "";
    proxy_set_header        X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
    proxy_set_header        X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
    proxy_http_version      1.1;
    proxy_connect_timeout   150;
    proxy_send_timeout      100;
    proxy_read_timeout      100;
    proxy_buffers           16 64k;
    proxy_busy_buffers_size 64k;
    client_max_body_size    256k;
    client_body_buffer_size 128k;

And this works fine for me.

Also if you need a cookbook, why not create one and contribute to the comunity? sharing = recieving...


server {

server_name localhost;
access_log /var/log/nginx/localhost.log;

location / {
proxy_pass http://localhost:5601;
proxy_read_timeout 90;

this is what i used and when i used yours i see error in restarting the service

Whats the error you see? And is that all the nginx config you have?

Redirecting to /bin/systemctl restart nginx.service
Job for nginx.service failed because the control process exited with error code.
See "systemctl status nginx.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.

do i need to use the localhost/floating ip address in the set kibana?

btb, in which file i need to update

You need to use you own configured ip address, if that is a float I assume you have some sort of load balancer. If so you need to apply that configuration on all hosts.
