Nginx Reverse Proxy config for Plex to prevent user from needing port or /web/index.html
upstream plex-upstream {
# change to the hostname:port of your plex server.
# this can be "localhost:32400", for instance, if Plex is running on the same server as nginx.
# I just use the IP and port of my server
server {
listen 80;
# server names for this server.
# any requests that come in that match any these names will use the proxy.
# You can use one or many names. I just use
# tv
# plex
# this is where everything cool happens (you probably don't need to change anything here):
location / {
# if a request to / comes in, 301 redirect to the main plex page.
# but only if it doesn't contain the X-Plex-Device-Name header
# this fixes a bug where you get permission issues when accessing the web dashboard
# Mine works with out this but I will leave it it here.
if ($http_x_plex_device_name = '') {
rewrite ^/$ http://$http_host/web/index.html;
# set some headers and proxy stuff.
