|Type||Select "NGINX" here.|
|Server name||Enter the server name (or hostname) that should be used to access the portal in the browser.
For example: "portal.example.org"
The server name (or hostname) entered here needs to be defined as part of the base URL in the portal properties.
|Back-end host||"Back-end host" refers to the embedded Tomcat. NGINX connects to the Intrexx portal service via the back-end host.
Typically, "localhost" should be entered here. (One exception to this is when NGINX is installed on a different server to Intrexx.)
|Back-end port||The port that you used in Intrexx 18.03 will be shown here. You can leave this port as it is.
Please note: The port 1337 is predefined for a new installation.
|Write configuration to file||If you activate the checkbox here, you can generate the NGINX configuration file with Intrexx.
In this case, Intrexx takes the information in the "Server name", "Back-end host" and "Back-end port" fields and writes them to the NGINX configuration file.
Enter the path to the directory that the NGINX configuration file should be generated in.
Afterwards, copy and link the NGINX configuration file to the desired folder within "/etc/nginx".
Example: "/etc/nginx/sites-available/ portal.example.org.conf"
Move the configuration file to the "sites-available" directory.
Please note: Depending on the Linux distribution and the selected installation package, the "sites-available" directory may not be available in some cases. If this is the case, please find out how the configuration file needs to be implemented for your Linux distribution.
Create a symbolic link from sites-enabled to the sites-available file. Use the full paths when doing this.
Please note: When using symbolic links, you should make sure that these are created directly in the desired directory.
Example: "ln–s /etc/nginx/sites-available/host.example.org.conf"
Restart NGINX.NGINX and Intrexx on different servers
