Reverse Proxy

Updated: May 27, 2021

Concept

A reverse proxy is used to avoid users from accessing the Nuxeo server directly. One simple rule you have to follow is that on a production setup, your Nuxeo server should never be exposed directly. Setting up a reverse proxy brings many benefits to performance and security aspects:

  • HTTPS/SSL encryption
  • HTTP caching
  • URL rewriting

Additionally, when some clients use a WAN to access the server, the reverse proxy can be used to protect the server against slow connections that may use server-side resources for a long time. You may refer to the reverse proxy configuration for more details.

Recommendation

A reverse proxy to protect each Nuxeo server node (usually Apache or Nginx).
