    What about running Kibana an Graylog on the same server?

    How would you configure nginx to redirect URL/kibana and URL/graylog ?

      You can do this too – you’ll need to tell nginx to proxy to a subdirectory with the location directive. Each location can use a separate block to proxy pass upstream.

    So, if I understand right, client requests resource by URL and Apache proxy server returns content of resource directly?
    Thanks

      Apache can be configured to do the same thing, yes – it is just a bit heavier in system resources so I prefer nginx for this.

    Does server_name have to be a valid domain name?

    • said…

      Nope – server_name can be an IP address or a URL. If you don’t have a valid domain name or DNS for the forwarding server, you could always make an entry in /etc/hosts to make it resolve that way.

    Why do you call it transparent?

    • said…

      Transparent refers to the fact that the proxy only sends data back and forth, it does not modify the web request sent by the client or response sent by the server. A non-transparent proxy would add content to the request or response.
