Can someone help to check this nginx conf file?

Posted January 26, 2020 881 views

Hi, I feel something is not right in my nginx conf. file, on how I set the file request.
Both old and new uploaded images to my website causing mixed content error.
Many thanks!


user  nginx;
worker_processes  1;

error_log  /var/log/nginx/error.log warn;
pid        /var/run/;

events {
    worker_connections  1024;

http {
    include       /etc/nginx/mime.types;
    default_type  application/octet-stream;

    log_format  main  '$remote_addr - $remote_user [$time_local] "$request" '
                      '$status $body_bytes_sent "$http_referer" '
                      '"$http_user_agent" "$http_x_forwarded_for"';

    access_log  /var/log/nginx/access.log  main;

    sendfile        on;
    #tcp_nopush     on;

    keepalive_timeout  65;

    #gzip  on;

server {
    listen 80 default_server;
    listen [::]:80 default_server ipv6only=on;

    # Added this to prevent man in the middle attacks
    add_header Strict-Transport-Security "max-age=31536000"; 

    #charset koi8-r;
    #access_log  /var/log/nginx/host.access.log  main;

    location / {
        root /var/www/;
        index index.html index.htm;

    #error_page  404              /404.html;

    # redirect server error pages to the static page /50x.html
    error_page   500 502 503 504  /50x.html;
    location = /50x.html {
        root   /usr/share/nginx/html;

    # proxy the PHP scripts to Apache listening on
    #location ~ \.php$ {
    #    proxy_pass;

    # pass the PHP scripts to FastCGI server listening on
    #location ~ \.php$ {
    #    root           html;
    #    fastcgi_pass;
    #    fastcgi_index  index.php;
    #    fastcgi_param  SCRIPT_FILENAME  /scripts$fastcgi_script_name;
    #    include        fastcgi_params;

    # deny access to .htaccess files, if Apache's document root
    # concurs with nginx's one
    #location ~ /\.ht {
    #    deny  all;

Hi @nurbliss25,

I can confirm this is not related to your Nginx configuration but with your CMS application. Mixed content is created when you try to load your images,css,js files with http rather than https but try to open your website via HTTPS.

If you are using a framework,CMS usually there is a very easy way to resolve the matter however you need to google it. I can’t help you without knowing what you are using.

If you are using a custom built application, you’ll need to look into how and where these images or files are saved and change them from being server with http to https.
