Plesk – have a custom nginx.conf per Virtual Host

Update: Plesk 12, just create a file called vhost_nginx.conf in the /conf/ directory. No need for the below hack:

just like you can have a custom vhost.conf and vhost_ssl.conf for apache, here’s how to add this feature for nginx on plesk as well:

# cp /usr/local/psa/admin/conf/templates/default/domain/nginxDomainVirtualHost.php /usr/local/psa/admin/conf/templates/custom/domain/
# vi /usr/local/psa/admin/conf/templates/custom/domain/nginxDomainVirtualHost.php

add this to the very end of the file

if (file_exists($VAR->domain->physicalHosting->vhostDir . '/conf/nginx.conf')): ?>
 include <?php echo $VAR->domain->physicalHosting->vhostDir;?>/conf/nginx.conf;
<?php endif ?>

now you can create a file called conf/nginx.conf under the plesk virtual host and when running

# /usr/local/psa/admin/bin/httpdmng --reconfigure-all

it will include this file when generating the nginx reverse proxy configuration for each domain.

solution from here:

note: when using the plesk migration manager it will copy across this “nginxDomainVirtualHost.php” file but it will not copy across the domain specific nginx.conf files

  1. You might want to include your nginx config into the custom template directory itself so it’s included in migrations:

    Something like this:

    includeTemplate(‘domain/nginxcustom/nginxcustom.conf’, $OPT); ?>

    Any thoughts?
