Running behind reverse proxyΒΆ

To run Flower behind a reverse proxy, remember to set the correct Host header to the request to make sure Flower can generate correct URLs. The following is a minimal nginx configuration:

server {
    listen 80;
    charset utf-8;

    location / {
        proxy_pass http://localhost:5555;
        proxy_set_header Host $host;
        proxy_redirect off;
        proxy_http_version 1.1;
        proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
        proxy_set_header Connection "upgrade";

Note that you should not expose this site to the public internet without any sort of authentication! If you have a htpasswd file with user credentials you can make nginx use this file by adding the following lines to the location block:

auth_basic "Restricted";
auth_basic_user_file htpasswd;
