Unable to reach graylog ui while using docker and nginx reverse proxy


(Casey Peters) #1

Hi all, I’m having some issues getting graylog setup in our AWS environment. Our setup is pretty simple with having a docker image with graylog, nginx, and mongodb. Then using an AWS elasticsearch cluster.

When navigating to our website nginx logs the following messages:

nginx_1    | 2018/09/20 22:37:36 [error] 5#5: *2 connect() failed (111: Connection refused) while connecting to upstream, client: 96.78.0.242, server: staging.logs.payments.campspot.com, request: "GET / HTTP/1.1", upstream: "http://172.18.0.3:9000/", host: "staging.logs.payments.campspot.com"

This is my nginx.conf

    logs.payments.campspot.com    "off";
  }

  server {
    listen 80;

    return 301 https://$host$request_uri;
  }

  server {
    listen 443 ssl;

    #auth_basic $auth_type;
    #auth_basic_user_file /etc/nginx/.htpasswd;

        proxy_pass       http://127.0.0.1:9000;
    }
  }
}

this is my docker-compose.yml

    - /etc/graylog/server:/usr/share/graylog/data/config # Mount local configuration directory into Docker container
    - /etc/graylog:/etc/graylog
    links:
    - mongo
    - nginx
    ports:
    - 9000:9000 # Graylog web interface and REST API
    - 514:514 # Syslog TCP
    - 514:514/udp # Syslog UDP
    - 12201:12201 # GELF TCP
    - 12201:12201/udp # GELF UDP
  nginx:
    image: nginx
    volumes:
    - /etc/nginx:/etc/nginx
    - /etc/letsencrypt:/etc/letsencrypt
    ports:
    - "80:80"
    - "443:443"

volumes:
  mongo_data:
    driver: local
  graylog_journal:
    driver: local

I can provide the full logs if they would be of help.

Heyo @Casey,

Your Graylog is only listening on it’s containers local loopback address 127.0.0.1. This is why it is not responding to requests on the IP 172.18.0.3.

You’ll have to alter the Graylog config for it to respond to 172.18.0.3 :slight_smile:

You might also want to consider to use Dockers internal DNS system where you can use the container name as hostname. So if your Graylog container has to be restarted and, for some reason, gets a different IP address, your system would still work and not run into the same issue again :slight_smile:

Greetings,
Philipp

your Graylog configuration is pointing to port 9000 while NGINX is running on 443

rest_transport_uri = http://staging.logs.payments.campspot.com:9000/api/
 server {
    listen 443 ssl;

Thank you @DerPhilipsi & @jan those changes helped me get a little bit further.
