When your site did not work properly in docker do following:
- Check is nginx container running
docker ps -a
3fbec7a5431f jwilder/nginx-proxy "/app/docker-entrypoi" 20 hours ago Up 7 minutes 0.0.0.0:80->80/tcp, 0.0.0.0:443->443/tcp nginx-proxy
- Check if it has proper configuration
docker exec nginx-proxy nginx -t
You should receive
nginx: the configuration file /etc/nginx/nginx.conf syntax is ok nginx: configuration file /etc/nginx/nginx.conf test is successful
docker exec nginx-proxy nginx -T
this shows configuration of nginx. So, no need to bash into nginx container and do cat /etc/nginx/conf.d/default.conf. It's much faster.
- Check if your container and nginx container has network connection.
If not, connect them with
docker network connect mycontainer_default nginx-proxy
- Check container logs
docker logs nginx-proxy -f --tail 250
That will show last 250 lines and continues to follow new data.
