nginx (opens new window) is a very common web server and reverse proxy.
# Supported versions
# Legacy versions
You can still run these versions with Lando but for all intents and purposes they should be considered deprecated (e.g. YMMV and do not expect a ton of support if you have an issue).
# Patch versions
Not officially supported!
While we allow users to specify patch versions for this service, they are not officially supported, so if you use one, YMMV.
To use a patch version, you can do something as shown below:
services: myservice: type: nginx:1.16.1
But make sure you use one of the available patch tags (opens new window) for the underlying image we are using.
Here are the configuration options, set to the default values, for this service. If you are unsure about where this goes or what this means we highly recommend scanning the services documentation to get a good handle on how the magicks work.
services: myservice: type: nginx:1.18 webroot: . ssl: false config: server: SEE BELOW vhosts: SEE BELOW params: SEE BELOW
# Using custom nginx config files
If you do this, you must use files that exist inside your application and express them relative to your project root as shown below:
Note that the default files may change based on how you set
A hypothetical project
Note that you can put your configuration files anywhere inside your application directory. We use a
config directory but you can call it whatever you want such as
.lando in the example below:
./ |-- config |-- default.conf |-- nginx.conf |-- fastcgi_params |-- index.html |-- .lando.yml
