Nginx Static Configuration

This example describes how to set up nginx for serving content generated by munin via cron.

Site Configuration

Nginx is quite good at serving static files, and as such the configuration is mostly in place already.

The paths are as in use on a Debian Linux system.

Add the following to /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/default:

location /munin/static/ {
    alias /etc/munin/static/;
    expires modified +1w;

location /munin/ {
    auth_basic            "Restricted";
    # Create the htpasswd file with the htpasswd tool.
    auth_basic_user_file  /etc/nginx/htpasswd;

    alias /var/cache/munin/www/;
    expires modified +310s;

For Zoom to work you also need to add the following to the same configuration file:

location ^~ /munin-cgi/munin-cgi-graph/ {
    access_log off;
    fastcgi_split_path_info ^(/munin-cgi/munin-cgi-graph)(.*);
    fastcgi_param PATH_INFO $fastcgi_path_info;
    fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/munin/fastcgi-graph.sock;
    include fastcgi_params;

If this is a dedicated Munin server, you might want to redirect the frontpage as well:

location = / {
    rewrite ^/$ munin/ redirect; break;
