How do I configure nginx proxy to Galaxy?


The following link shows the configuration page for Galaxy and nginx:


The following proxy rule should be added to the nginx.conf file:


# grep SSL /etc/nginx/nginx.conf




If the Galaxy is placed behind a proxy address that uses SSL (e.g. https:// URLs), then the following needs to be set in the nginx configurations:


location / {

proxy_set_header X-URL-SCHEME https;



Setting X-URL-SCHEME makes Galaxy aware of what type of URL it should generate for external sites like Biomart. This should be added to the existing location / { } block and if Galaxy is being served from a subdirectory, then the localion should be adjusted accordingly.
