6.2.X redirect on alternate port; Solution included; Manual needs update

I’ve linked a previous post with details of the problem at the bottom of this post. The Seafile manual needs to be updated with the following solution.

Summary of issue:
Since the release of 6.2.X, the WebUI redirects (to port 80) when using an alternate port number in NGinx.


In the Nginx config file for the site, the solution is to replace this line:

proxy_set_header Host $host;

with this line:

proxy_set_header Host $host:$server_port;

Requesting that the manual be updated with this information.

You can change it yourself and open a pull request on GitHub.

Ah… Cool… I did not know that. :slight_smile: Will take care of it later today. Can you provide the link to the github?

Ok, I found Seafile on github. Do I just need to issue a pull request with my proposed changes to the manual, or is there something else I need to do?

You got it, it is quite easy.
