Dynamic config options from ENV

Hi everybody,

is it possible to set a nginx config variable from an ENV variable? I
tried
several thing, but none of them worked. The most promising was
specifying
“env MY_VAR;” at the top of the nginx.conf and then using its value via
“my_option $ENV{“MY_VAR”};”. But it didn’t work. I always got an error
about the line not being terminated.

  1. Is it possible to set a config option via ENV varaibles
  2. If so, does it have any performance implications? (The ENV wont
    change
    during run time)

Thank you very much for your help.

You can’t do this nicely with nginx. Your best option is to
pre-process the config file each time you reload/etc, interpolating
the envvars so that nginx itself sees static values.

Thank you Jonathan,

I was afraid that this is the only option… really sad :frowning:

I am currently experimenting with docker and dynamic setups which work
for
all environments… too bad that we need to use a custom script do handle
the
problem at hand. But thank you very much.

Well probably not that bad if you can use something allready made:
