Nginx Proxy Wordpress Configuration

Posted on Apr 2, 2019

If you need to proxy your Wordpress blog via Nginx. This is the configuration I have recently used.

Update with your intended domain name. and with the Wordpress servers details.

server {
        server_name ;

        gzip on;
        gzip_min_length 10240;
        gzip_types text/plain text/css text/xml text/javascript application/x-javascript application/xml;
        gzip_disable “MSIE [1-6]\.”;

        add_header Cache-Control public;

        location / {
                proxy_set_header X-Real-IP  $remote_addr;
                proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $remote_addr;
                proxy_set_header Host $host;
                proxy_pass http://:;
