Get nginx version remote

Hello,

we use nginx as reverse proxy for some websites, and we’d like to get
the
nginx version for administration purposes.

Is there as way to get nginx’s version remote, for example like the
same
way as the HttpStubStatusModule (restricted url/access) ?

Thanks in advance.

map $remote_addr $can_have_version {
default 0;
192.168.96.0/24 1; # put your allowed IP list here
}

location /nginx-version {
if ($can_have_version) {
return 200 “nginx version: $nginx_version\n”;
}
return 403;
}

This is one way another would be using a key with an arg like this:

location /nginx-version {
if ($arg_k = mychosenkey) {
return 200 “nginx version: $nginx_version\n”;
}
return 403;
}

You would request the version with:

http://myhost.com/nginx-version?k=mychosenkey

Just two examples, plenty of other possible ways to go about it.

Actually, by default (at least with the debian packages from
nginx.org) it’s in the Server header:

Server: nginx/1.0.11
