I'm using Dokku to run a node API and recently hit the
413 Request Entity Too Large error when trying to upload a file ~1.5mb.
I've followed the Dokku Nginx docs and created a
nginx.conf.d folder in the root of my project with
upload.conf file that contains on entry -
My understanding; this should modify your Nginx config next time you git push the app, but it is not working for me. What am I missing?
nginx.confpermissions (must be to dokku:dokku), check if nginx.conf contain the line
include /home/dokku/myapp/nginx.conf.d/*.conf;and/or finally try to manually restart nginx.
Since Dokku 0.23.0 you can set it natively with:
dokku nginx:set node-js-app client-max-body-size 50m
It was my misunderstanding, you have to SSH to the server and execute the following as root:
mkdir /home/dokku/myapp/nginx.conf.d/ echo 'client_max_body_size 50M;' > /home/dokku/myapp/nginx.conf.d/upload.conf chown dokku:dokku /home/dokku/myapp/nginx.conf.d/upload.conf service nginx reload
Replace myapp with your app name
You can use the Nginx-Max-Body-Size plugin. It also adds the
client_max_body_size directive, and you can control it using a configuration variable:
dokku config:set MAX_UPLOAD_SIZE=20M
