How to configure static website using Nginx with MinIO ?

1. Install nginx

2. Install minio

3. Install mc client

  • Add Minio
mc config host list

4. Create a bucket:

$ mc mb myminio/static
Bucket created successfully ‘myminio/static’.

5. Make bucket public to host/access static content.

$ mc anonymous set download myminio/static
Access permission for ‘myminio/static’ is set to ‘download’

6. Upload a sample static HTML site to minio bucket, in my case i used example:

$ mc cp -r terrafirma/ myminio/static  39.37 KB / 39.37 KB ┃▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓┃ 100.00% 31.94 KB/s 1s

Note: this is how my bucket content appears to me currently.

$ mc ls myminio/static

7. Configure Nginx as proxy to serve static pages from public bucket name static from Minio.

Remove default configuration and replace it with the below. Please change as per your local setup.

$ cat /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/default 
server {
 listen 80;
 server_name localhost;
 location / {
   rewrite ^/$ /static/index.html break;
   proxy_set_header Host $http_host;
   proxy_pass http://localhost:9000/static/;

$ sudo service nginx reload

8. Open your browser and type http://localhost
