Graylog displays balnk screen after starting

I’m running Garylog on docker container.I followed Quick start method on Graylog documentation to install Graylog. I used HTTP_EXTERNAL_URI as “”.
After installation I have added a location block inside my nginx and the connection is http. It looks like following

 location /graylog {
      proxy_set_header Host $http_host;
      proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Host $host;
      proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Server $host;
      proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
      proxy_set_header X-Graylog-Server-URL http://$server_name/;

But when I access Graylog, it display nothing. I accessed Graylog like this http://my-ip/graylog.
I got some error in the browser console.

Can any one help me what went wrong? Thanks

if you access nginx via IP this line will not work:

X-Graylog-Server-URL http://$server_name/;

you should put the IP in that. NGINX will not put the IP in the variable server_name…

Hi Jan,
Thanks for the answer. I changed the $server_name to my IP. Unfortunately it didn’t work. This is what I got this time from my console.


Issue got fixed. I used a docker compose file. Thanks
