Nextjs + nginx + serve images

Hi i followed to the tutorials how to set up ubuntu, nginx, pm2. i set up nginx + nextjs 13. text content is served well.

i have an issue with serving images together with nextjs optimization mechanizm.

for some reason request www.uppr[.]com[.]ua/_next/image?url=%2Fassets%2Fimages%2Fblog-articles%2Facronyms_which_you_should_use_in_emails_main.jpg&w=1920&q=75 gives me 500 error.

I read information in internet and understood that it is due to double routing on nginx side and nextjs server side.

Please could you provide example of the correct configuration for the nginx + nextjs for such cases.

site for example is uppr[.]com[.]ua/blog

Hi there,

I could suggest starting with the following:

  • Check your Nginx error log to see if there are any errors in there that could indicate a problem with the configuration:
tail -100 /var/log/nginx/error.log
  • Check your Node.js logs using to see if the problem is related with the app itself:
pm2 logs

That way you should be able to see the actual error causing the problem rather than the generic 500 error.

Feel free to share the error here so we could try to advise you further!
