Install NGINX:

Installing an Nginx Nginx is required to mask Bright’s domain from your users. The needed actions are creating a new server and configure the settings.

  • Install – Install nginx to server e.g by official instructions (version 1.15.10 or higher)
  • Make sure server IP is not added to Proxy Manager admin and proxy whitelists
  • Open nginx config file /etc/nginx/nginx.conf – Set worker_processes to auto
  • Set worker_connections to 200 -This should be in correlation with the amount of ports you want to use
  • At the end of the HTTP section add the line include /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/*;
  • Create directory /etc/nginx/sites-enabled – Create file /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/pmgr.conf
  • Restart nginx sudo service nginx restart – Add nginx IP to Proxy Manager reverse_proxy_ips

This is how your /nginx.conf file should look like :


      worker_processes  auto;

user www-data;

error_log /var/log/nginx/error.log info;

events {

worker_connections 200;


http {

include /etc/nginx/mime.types;

access_log /var/log/nginx/access.log combined;

server {

server_name localhost;


error_page 500 502 503 504 /50x.html;


# Other configuration...

include /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/*;


And this is how your pmgr.conf file should look like:

        GNU nano 4.8                                                                                                                       pmgr.conf                                                                                                                                  

server {

listen 24000-24100;

location /{



proxy_set_header Host $host;

proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;



You can test your connection by sending this request :

       curl --proxy "" -v

And the expected output will be :

      {"ip":"","country":"US","asn":{"asnum":207990,"org_name":"HostRoyale Technologies Pvt Ltd"},"geo":{"city":"Chicago","region":"IL","region_name":"Illinois","postal_code":"60602","latitude":41.8874,"longitude":-87.6318,"tz":"America/Chicago","lum_city":"chicago","lum_region":"il"}}

You can check the logs on your proxy manager to make sure that the request routed through the nginx server. Make sure that “sent from” is your actual Nginx server IP address.

You are all set and ready to go!
