Configure Nginx as the Devilry webserver for static filesΒΆ

For Nginx, you should use something like this (not a complete config file, just the location sections that you should add to your config):

location /static {
    # Show directory index.
    autoindex  on;

    # NOTE from:
    # Keep in mind that the root will still append the directory
    # to the request so that a request for "/i/top.gif" will not look
    # in "/spool/w3/top.gif" like might happen in an Apache-like alias
    # configuration where the location match itself is dropped. Use the
    # alias directive to achieve the Apache-like functionality.
    root /path/to/devilrybuild;

location / {
    proxy_set_header Host $host:$server_port;
    proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
    proxy_set_header X-DEVILRY_USE_EXTJS true;

    # SSL options
    proxy_set_header X-FORWARDED-PROTOCOL ssl;
    proxy_set_header X-FORWARDED-SSL on;
    proxy_headers_hash_max_size 1024;
    proxy_headers_hash_bucket_size 256;
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto https;

We recommend Nginx because it is fast, lightweight, secure and easy to setup.
