🕵️Proxy Setup

Setting up LANraragi behind a proxy (reverse proxy setup)

A common post-install setup is to make requests to the app transit through a gateway server such as Apache or nginx. If you do so, please note that archive uploads through LRR will likely not work out of the box due to maximum sizes on uploads those servers can enforce. The example below is for nginx:

http {
    client_max_body_size 0;   <----------------------- This line here

server {
    listen 80;

    server_name lanraragi.[REDACTED].net;

    return 301 https://$host$request_uri;

server {
    listen 443 ssl;
    index index.php index.html index.htm;
    server_name lanraragi.[REDACTED].net;

    client_max_body_size 0;   <----------------------- And this line here

    # Cert Stuff Omitted

    location / {
        proxy_http_version 1.1;
        <----- The two following lines are needed for batch tagger support with SSL ----->
        proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade; 
        proxy_set_header Connection $connection_upgrade;

Setting up LANraragi to use a proxy for outbound network requests

This is a less common scenario, but you might want to have downloads or metadata requests to external services go through a proxy, in case said external services are blocked by your friendly local totalitarian regime.

LANraragi runs on top of the Mojolicious web server, which has built-in support for proxifying external requests.

To enable automatic proxy detection, the MOJO_PROXY environment variable must be set to 1 on your machine: This is enabled by default on Docker builds. Once said detection enabled, environment variables HTTP_PROXY, http_proxy, HTTPS_PROXY, https_proxy, NO_PROXY and no_proxy will be checked for proxy information.

Here's an example for a Docker-compose setup:

version: "2.1"
    image: difegue/lanraragi:latest
    container_name: lanraragi
      - http_proxy=
      - https_proxy=
      - [database]:/home/koyomi/lanraragi/database
      - [content]:/home/koyomi/lanraragi/content
      - 7070:3000
    restart: unless-stopped
