I deploy OpenERP behind nginx (1.7.4). My nginx configuration is simple near default, just proxying 80 to 8069. OpenERP is serving in port 8069. I set proxy_mode to True in openerp-server.conf. I also edit file wsgi_server.py in method application to allow HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR key in environ.


    if config['proxy_mode'] and ('HTTP_X_FORWARDED_HOST' in environ or 'HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR' in environ):
        environ['HTTP_X_FORWARDED_HOST'] = environ['HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR']
        return werkzeug.contrib.fixers.ProxyFix(application_unproxied)(environ, start_response)


I use werkzeug version 0.9.4.

The result is I still get local ip,, in the werkzeug info log, even though I access the server from another IP. Howto show real client IP in werkzeug log if OpenERP serve behind reverse-proxy?

Not sure if it can be considered thread necromancy, but have a look a this for a v8/9 solution:


It worked for me.

How do you apply this solution?
