SSI and proxy_pass

Hi all,

I’m trying out nginx. I would like to use it to perform the following:

  1. Retrieve a page from a server1 which includes some SSI commands
  2. Process the SSI commands, eventually including content from server2
  3. Return the resultant page

I’ve got SSI working when using a local file, but not when using the
page
from a server1 using proxy_pass.

Here’s my config I’m using to try to achieve the above.

events {
worker_connections 1024;
}
http {
server {
listen 80;
server_name localhost;

    location /hello-world.html {
        ssi on;
        proxy_pass http://tom.office.bla.co.uk:8080/hello-world/;
    }
}

}
For testing purposes, I’m using a simple SSI command, as shown in the
output
my browser actually ends up with, which is identical to the content on
server1:

Do I need to use something other than proxy_pass, or is it just not
possible? Thanks!

You need to look carefully what actually your “server1” returns to
nginx.

It can be a response with an inappropriate content type (see the
ssi_types
directive). Or, for example, it uses compression.
