An Nginx Configuration For Jenkins

Lots of people have posted configurations of Nginx to allow effective proxying of Jenkins when they are both on the same server, but for some reason, it seems that having them on different servers doesn’t seem as commonly discussed. I am using Nginx in my SOHO network to front a few virtual servers, and provide them all via the few IPs I have on my Comcast Business Class connection. That means having a proxy that can serve up the various systems supporting various domains.

We’ve covered how to build a Jenkins server, so for the sake of documenting this additional capability, here’s my configuration:

server {
  listen 80;
  server_name jenkins.domain.com;

  access_log /var/log/nginx/jenkins_access.log main buffer=32k;
  error_log /var/log/nginx/jenkins_error.log;

  rewrite /jenkins/(.*) /$1 last;

  location / {
    proxy_pass       http://192.168.1.115:8080/jenkins/;
    proxy_redirect   off;
    proxy_set_header Host $http_host;
    proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;

    # max upload size
    client_max_body_size       20m;
    client_body_buffer_size    128k;
    proxy_connect_timeout      90;
    proxy_send_timeout         90;
    proxy_read_timeout         90;
    proxy_buffer_size          4k;
    proxy_buffers              4 32k;
    proxy_busy_buffers_size    64k;
    proxy_temp_file_write_size 64k;
  }

}
