nginx ConfigurationΒΆ

Configuring nginx to serve your panel is pretty straight forward. All you have to do is configure a proxy_pass block to forward all traffic intended for the panel to it..

server {
  listen 80;
  server_name panel.examplehost.com;

  location ~ ^/\.well-known {
    root /var/www/html;
    allow all;
  }

  location / {
      return 301 https://$host$request_uri;
  }
}

server {
  listen 443 ssl;
  root /var/www/pufferpanel;

  ssl_certificate     /etc/nginx/ssl/<server>.crt;
  ssl_certificate_key /etc/nginx/ssl/<server>.key;

  server_name panel.examplehost.com;

  location / {
    proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
    proxy_http_version 1.1;
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
    proxy_set_header Host $http_host;
    proxy_set_header Connection "Upgrade";
    proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
    proxy_set_header X-Nginx-Proxy true;
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto $scheme;
    proxy_pass http://localhost:8080;
  }
}

Warning

PufferPanel has to send sensitive data like passwords over the network
Because of this it is not advisable to run a publicly accessible instance without SSL
server {
    listen 80;
    root /var/www/pufferpanel;

    server_name panel.examplehost.com;

    location ~ ^/\.well-known {
      root /var/www/html;
      allow all;
    }

    location / {
        proxy_pass http://localhost:8080;
        proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
        proxy_http_version 1.1;
        proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
        proxy_set_header Host $http_host;
        proxy_set_header X-Nginx-Proxy true;
        proxy_set_header Connection "Upgrade";
        proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto $scheme;
    }
}
