Wordpress on Synology NAS with Nginx reverse proxy - Redirect Loop

Hello, I am troubleshooting this for a long time now, but I can’t find a solution by myself - hope you can help me. I installed the Wordpress package on my Synology NAS, which serves Wordpress on

Now I want to access the site from the internet - therefore I set up a reverse proxy with Nginx - I use this proxy for some internal sites, everything works except Wordpress, where it ends either in an redirect loop, or a “page not found” Wordpress site.

Wordpress is hosted on the Synology Nas with no SSL, because I want that the SSL encryption is served by the reverse proxy, so that I don’t need to install the certificate on the Synology Nas.

I already tried to disable Wordpress redirecting with remove_filter(‘template_redirect’,‘redirect_canonical’); in the theme functions.php, but no success.

Thank you in advance for your much appreciated help!

My Wordpress website address is set to:

My Nginx config for this subdomain part:

server {
	listen 443 ssl http2;
	listen [::]:443 ssl http2;
	index index.php;

	# reverse proxy
	location / {

	# SSL
	ssl_certificate /etc/letsencrypt/live/;
	ssl_certificate_key /etc/letsencrypt/live/;
	ssl_trusted_certificate /etc/letsencrypt/live/;

	proxy_ssl_session_reuse on;
	proxy_ssl_verify       on;

#Forward HTTP to HTTPS

server {
   listen 80;
   listen [::]:80;
   return 301 https://$server_name$request_uri;



proxy_http_version	1.1;
proxy_cache_bypass	$http_upgrade;

proxy_set_header Upgrade			$http_upgrade;
proxy_set_header Connection 		"upgrade";
proxy_set_header Host				$host;
proxy_set_header X-Real-IP			$remote_addr;
proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For	$proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto	$scheme;
proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Host	$host;
proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Port	$server_port;

If you visit via your local network, does it work as expected?

If so, try updating the config a little bit to match your site and home URLs in your WordPress installation:

    # reverse proxy
    location /wordpress {

Let me know how it goes! Bobby
