Nginx is a popular web server. It is used for reverse proxy and load balancing.

Note. You need to run TeleDrive in your machine


Get started by build all needed services.

What you'll need

  • TeleDrive running application
  • Domain name and set up DNS A record with your public IP address

Setup Config

Create a new config file /etc/nginx/sites-available/teledrive with the following content:

upstream teledrive {
server; # running application with active port

server_name; # change to your domain name

send_timeout 60m;
client_header_timeout 60m;
client_body_timeout 60m;
client_max_body_size 2048M;
large_client_header_buffers 8 256k;

location / {
proxy_pass http://teledrive/;
proxy_http_version 1.1;
proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
proxy_set_header Connection 'upgrade';
proxy_set_header Host $host;
proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $remote_addr;
proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto $scheme;
proxy_cache_bypass $http_upgrade;

client_max_body_size 2048M;

proxy_buffer_size 256k;
proxy_buffers 4 256k;
proxy_busy_buffers_size 256k;

Then, link the config file to /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/teledrive:

sudo ln -s /etc/nginx/sites-available/teledrive /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/teledrive

Restart Nginx

Try to check the web config:

nginx -t

Then, restart the service:

sudo service nginx restart

Now, you can access TeleDrive from your domain name 🎊

SSL Certificate

For security reason please create a SSL certificate for your domain name. We recommend using Let's Encrypt service. Here's how to do it:
