nginx - small, powerful, scalable web/proxy server SYNOPSIS
nginx [options] <configuration file> DESCRIPTION
Nginx ("engine X") is a high-performance web and reverse proxy server created by Igor Sysoev. It can be used both as a standalone web server and as a proxy to reduce the load on back-end HTTP or mail servers. OPTIONS
A summary of options is included below: -?,-h Show this help. -v Show version and exit. -V Show version and configure options then exit. -s signal Send signal to a master process: stop, quit, reopen, reload. -p prefix Set prefix path. -g directives Set global directives out of configuration file. -c <configuration file> Specifies a particular configuration file for nginx to load. -t Tests nginx configuration and exit.

systemd-socket-proxyd - Bidirectionally proxy local sockets to another (possibly remote) socket. SYNOPSIS
systemd-socket-proxyd [OPTIONS...] HOST:PORT systemd-socket-proxyd [OPTIONS...] UNIX-DOMAIN-SOCKET-PATH DESCRIPTION
systemd-socket-proxyd is a generic socket-activated network socket forwarder proxy daemon for IPv4, IPv6 and UNIX stream sockets. It may be used to bi-directionally forward traffic from a local listening socket to a local or remote destination socket. One use of this tool is to provide socket activation support for services that do not natively support socket activation. On behalf of the service to activate, the proxy inherits the socket from systemd, accepts each client connection, opens a connection to a configured server for each client, and then bidirectionally forwards data between the two. This utility's behavior is similar to socat(1). The main differences for systemd-socket-proxyd are support for socket activation with "Accept=false" and an event-driven design that scales better with the number of connections. OPTIONS
The following options are understood: -h, --help Print a short help text and exit. --version Print a short version string and exit. --connections-max=, -c Sets the maximum number of simultaneous connections, defaults to 256. If the limit of concurrent connections is reached further connections will be refused. EXIT STATUS
On success, 0 is returned, a non-zero failure code otherwise. EXAMPLES
Simple Example Use two services with a dependency and no namespace isolation. Example 1. proxy-to-nginx.socket [Socket] ListenStream=80 [Install] Example 2. proxy-to-nginx.service [Unit] Requires=nginx.service After=nginx.service Requires=proxy-to-nginx.socket After=proxy-to-nginx.socket [Service] ExecStart=/lib/systemd/systemd-socket-proxyd /tmp/nginx.sock PrivateTmp=yes PrivateNetwork=yes Example 3. nginx.conf [...] server { listen unix:/tmp/nginx.sock; [...] Example 4. Enabling the proxy # systemctl enable --now proxy-to-nginx.socket $ curl http://localhost:80/ Namespace Example Similar as above, but runs the socket proxy and the main service in the same private namespace, assuming that nginx.service has PrivateTmp= and PrivateNetwork= set, too. Example 5. proxy-to-nginx.socket [Socket] ListenStream=80 [Install] Example 6. proxy-to-nginx.service [Unit] Requires=nginx.service After=nginx.service Requires=proxy-to-nginx.socket After=proxy-to-nginx.socket JoinsNamespaceOf=nginx.service [Service] ExecStart=/lib/systemd/systemd-socket-proxyd PrivateTmp=yes PrivateNetwork=yes Example 7. nginx.conf [...] server { listen 8080; [...] Example 8. Enabling the proxy # systemctl enable --now proxy-to-nginx.socket $ curl http://localhost:80/ SEE ALSO
