Zuar WAF uses Nginx as a web server and proxy server. Nginx runs inside Docker in the zwaf microservice.

Configuring Nginx

Nginx configuration files are located in the home directory of the user running Docker:

  • The main Nginx directory is located at /home/{user}/app/nginx.
  • Individual Nginx configuration files are located at /home/{user}/app/nginx/conf.d/.

Learn more about configuring Nginx.

Restarting Nginx

Any changes made to the Nginx configuration files require restarting Nginx.

Restart Nginx through Docker with docker exec zwaf nginx -s reload.
