Nginx Reverse Proxy

The trailing slashes are important.

server {
  listen 80;
  listen [::]:80;
  server_name code.example.com code.example.org;
  location /some/path/ { # Or / if hosting at the root.
      proxy_pass http://localhost:8080/;
      proxy_set_header Host $host;
      proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
      proxy_set_header Connection upgrade;
      proxy_set_header Accept-Encoding gzip;
  }
}

Apache Reverse Proxy

<VirtualHost *:80>
  ServerName code.example.com

  RewriteEngine On
  RewriteCond %{HTTP:Upgrade} =websocket [NC]
  RewriteRule /(.*)           ws://localhost:8080/$1 [P,L]
  RewriteCond %{HTTP:Upgrade} !=websocket [NC]
  RewriteRule /(.*)           http://localhost:8080/$1 [P,L]

  ProxyRequests off
  ProxyPass        / http://localhost:8080/ nocanon
  ProxyPassReverse / http://localhost:8080/
</VirtualHost>

Run automatically at startup

In some cases you might need to run code-server automatically once the host starts. You may use your local init service to do so.

Systemd

Kubernetes/Docker

Make sure you set your restart policy to always - this will ensure your container starts as the daemon starts.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
