I am trying to set up Nginx reverse proxy to a web app being served by Python bokeh server as instructed here:


For testing I am using a simple myapp.py from the same link. I use bokeh serve myapp.py --port 5100 to start the app.

My Nginx server is up and running. I have modified the Nginx setup to allow reverse proxy to port 5100 like so:

server {
listen 80 default_server;
server_name _;

access_log  /tmp/bokeh.access.log;
error_log   /tmp/bokeh.error.log debug;

location / {
    proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
    proxy_set_header Connection "upgrade";
    proxy_http_version 1.1;
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
    proxy_set_header Host $host:$server_port;
    proxy_buffering off;


However when I visit http://localhost, I get sent to localhost/myapp and a Page 404 error. The app is still running fine on localhost:5100/myapp.

What am I doing wrong? Any help or suggestion would be greatly appreciated.
