Is there a problem with my nginx.conf?

Hi,

I’m new with nginx, so i just copy paste my nginx.conf from some
resources on internet. I just want to know if there’s any mistakes or
wrong configuration. Here it is

user              nginx;
worker_processes  1;

error_log  /var/log/nginx/error.log;
#error_log  /var/log/nginx/error.log  notice;
#error_log  /var/log/nginx/error.log  info;

I see at least one problem: the configuration is unreadable, it has
very bad formating.

hi
i am running ngnix with perl module for IMAP/POP, but i am not getting
the source remote address from where user is authenticating.
my conf:
http {
include /etc/nginx/mime.types;
default_type application/octet-stream;

log_format  main  '$remote_addr - $remote_user [$time_local]

$request ’
'"$status" $body_bytes_sent “$http_referer” ’
‘"$http_user_agent" “$http_x_forwarded_for”’;

access_log  /var/log/nginx/access.log  main;
perl_modules  perl/lib;
perl_require  mailauth.pm;
server {
   listen 8880;
   location /auth {
      perl  mailauth::handler;
   }
}

}

mail {
auth_http 127.0.0.1:8880/auth;
auth_http_timeout 6000;

pop3_capabilities “TOP” “USER”;
imap_capabilities “IMAP4rev1” “UIDPLUS”;

server {
listen 110;
protocol pop3;
proxy on;
auth_http_header X-Auth-Port 110;
}
server {
listen 143;
protocol imap;
proxy on;
auth_http_header X-Auth-Port 143;
}
}

sub handler {
my $r = shift;
$r->header_out(“Auth-Status”, “OK”);
$r->header_out(“Auth-Server”, ‘192.168.1.2’);
$r->header_out(“Auth-Port”, ‘143’);
$r->send_http_header(“text/html”);
warn 'H: ',$r->remote_addr;
return OK;
}

from 192.168.1.3
telnet 192.168.1.1 143
. login user1 pass1
. OK [CAPABILITY IMAP4 IMAP4rev1 logged in

Connection to auth_http server is obviously from nginx, not
client. Client’s ip address as seen on nginx mail proxy is
available in Client-IP header.

Maxim D.

thanks a lot, Client-IP header worked for me.

Hi,
now the problem is on nginx server(192.168.1.1) if i do
telnet localhost 143
. login user1 pass1
. OK [CAPABILITY IMAP4 User logged in
. select inbox

  • FLAGS (\Answered \Flagged \Draft \Deleted \Seen)
  • OK [PERMANENTFLAGS (\Answered \Flagged \Draft \Deleted \Seen *)]
    * 0 EXISTS

    if i do telnet to actual imap host(192.168.1.2)
    telnet 192.168.1.2 143
    . login user1 pass1
    . OK [CAPABILITY IMAP4 User logged in
    . select inbox
  • FLAGS (\Answered \Flagged \Draft \Deleted \Seen)
  • OK [PERMANENTFLAGS (\Answered \Flagged \Draft \Deleted \Seen *)]
    * 1 EXISTS

and no error in nginx logs
nginx -V output is

one more problem is how get original ip in authentication details of
imap-server log instead of nginx server ip.
when i see cyrus authentication log (/var/log/maillog) it shows nginx ip
as
client-ip instead of original desktop ip.

nginx doesn’t execute “select” imap command by itself, it just
passes everything it got from client after login to backend
server.

You may want to re-check you auth script, most likely it returned
some other imap host to nginx.

Maxim D.

other issue i’m getting is when i login thru php webmail (which connects
to
nginx for imap proxy) I am not getting original remote_addr in nginx
server,
instead i am getting 127.0.0.1, I’ve tried below header in php webmail
where
imap login happens, using
header('X-Forwarded-For: '.$_SERVER[‘REMOTE_ADDR’]);

how should i get original remote address in nginx.
