Using Cloudflare Proxy and Not Nginx Proxy

By

Hello

We have Odoo insalled on our own VPS and we wish to publish our website that we have created. As we want to use Cloudflare as we do all our websites we do not want to use the Nginx proxy for our website.

The issue we are facing is we do not know the Nginx config as our current config when we have commented out the Nginx proxy parameters and we go to our web domain we are shown a defult Nginx page and not our websites content. However, if we use our current config just over HTTP and not HTTPS the website displays correctly. We want to use SSL and have Cloudflare proxy as Cloudflare can proxy ports 80,443, 8080, 8443 and a few others.

I think what we are missing is the root location of our static files but we are not sure if the server block needs to be setup like other 'normal' non-proxy sites.

I have posted our current Nginx config and XXXX our domain name and also you will notice the commented out proxy info...As the current config below when we go to our domain name the default Nginx page is displayed.

Also you will notice in the config that the upstream is set to oddo and also in the proxy config http://oddo...We dont know what is the correct setting here.


Please help

}

Just to add a point you are missing an upstream entry of longpolling.

Well I finally figured it out. For those that have the same issue all you need is these proxy directives in your nginx conf and comment out the rest


location / {

proxy_pass http://oddo;

proxy_next_upstream error timeout invalid_header http_500 http_502 http_503 http_504;

proxy_redirect off;

# proxy_set_header Host $host;

# proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;

# proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;

# proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto https;

}

location ~* /web/static/ {

proxy_cache_valid 200 60m;

proxy_buffering on;

expires 864000;

proxy_pass http://XXXXXXXX.com;
