Setup Proxy Server

Wapka Reverse Proxy

Configure NGINX as a reverse proxy for HTTP protocols, with support for modifying request headers and fine-tuned buffering of responses.

This article describes the basic configuration of a proxy server. You will learn how to pass a request from Wapka to proxied servers over different protocols, modify client request headers that are sent to the proxied server, and configure buffering of responses coming from the proxied servers.


Proxying is typically used to distribute the load among several servers, seamlessly show content from different websites, or pass requests for processing to application servers over protocols other than HTTP.

When Wapka proxies a request, it sends the request to a specified proxied server, fetches the response, and sends it back to the client. It is possible to proxy requests to an HTTP server (another NGINX server or any other server) or a non-HTTP server (which can run an application developed with a specific framework, such as PHP or Python) using a specified protocol.

To pass a request to an HTTP proxied server, the proxy library is used inside  Server Configuration.

For example:

proxy.pass(""); ---> send all request to
