Question

NGINX blocking website posts

I have successfully deployed my website to digital ocean, however I am not able to log users in. It seems to be breaking with a server 500 error. GET requests from my api are working I believe just not POST. I am using Django Rest framework on the backend and vue for the frontend. Here is my backend .conf file :

upstream relate_app_server {
	server unix:/webapps/relate/env_3_8/run/gunicorn.sock fail_timeout=0;          
}

server {
	listen 80;
	               
	server_name api.relatestudy.com;       
	
	client_max_body_size 4G;
	access_log /var/log/nginx/api-access.log;
	error_log /var/log/nginx/api-error.log;

	location /static/ {
		alias /webapps/relate/env_3_8/relate_django/static/;
	}
	location /media/ {
		alias /webapps/relate/env_3_8/relate_django/media/;
	}
	location / {
		                            
	proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for; 
	proxy_set_header Host $http_host; 
	proxy_redirect off; 
	proxy_pass http://relate_app_server;       
   
}
     
} 

and my front.conf file:

server {
	listen 80;   
                   
	                 
	server_name relatestudy.com www.relatestudy.com;

	root /webapps/relate/relate_vue/dist;                        

	index index.html;

	location / {
	     
		try_files $uri $uri/ /index.html; 
		                                 
	}
}

Here is my settings.py:

ALLOWED_HOSTS = ['api.relatestudy.com']
WEBSITE_URL = 'http://api.relatestudy.com'
CORS_ALLOWED_ORIGINS = [
   'http://www.relatestudy.com',
]
CSRF_TRUSTED_ORIGINS = [
        'http://www.relatestudy.com'
]

Does anyone have any ideas what might be happening? Any help would be really appreciated. Im not really getting anywhere with this…

Hi @littleturquoiseanemone,

Can you please check your Error Log and see the exact error behind the POST request for logging in? It would be either in Nginx or in Django’s logs.
