NGINX Buildpack for Dokku - Hosting static pages
This buildpack has been successfully run on Digital Ocean instances of Ubuntu 14.04 (Status: Jan 2015). It might also work with different configurations.
buildpack-nginx provides a simple, low overhead way of hosting static pages and websites on Dokku. Just add the
.static file to the root directory of your website as described below.
- Add a file with the name
.envin the root of your directory with the following content:
- Add another, empty file called
.staticto your root directory of your web project. It signals that this buildpack shall be used
- Push your project to Dokku
All static files that you want to serve should be in the root directory of your repository. No need to use a seperate
buildpack-nginx will automatically download the buildpack, download NGINX, compile it, and install it. The next time you push your project, the buildpack will reuse the precompiled binaries.
Override default configuration by adding
nginx.conf.erb in the root directory
