Some Carbonio customizations are included in this section. The installation instructions for the Carbonio Docs Custom Fonts have been relocated to the Carbonio User Guides area.
An administrator could want to modify NGINX for a number of reasons, such as providing a unique header for internal audit. The NGINX configuration file will be rewritten after upgrades, thus editing it is not an option. The most practical choice is to utilise a template provided by NGINX. The rest of this section will provide some functioning NGINX information that is important to customizations before demonstrating the process.\
NGINX creates its initial configuration from files in two directories:
which are then processed and saved in
, which are then read and utilised during regular operations. A separate directory called
, includes files that override settings in the equivalent files in the
directory, allowing for customised adjustments.
In other words, whenever the configuration is read, if a file with the same name exists in the
folders, the one in the
directory is utilised.
This implies that a user must alter the built-in
template instead of storing preferences in a file with a specific filename.
A few things are worth mentioning:
- Every time a customised template is used, the processed file (the one located in the
directory) will add a header indicating that the configuration was created using a customised template and providing instructions on how to return to the default.
- Which template is selected and to which file it is saved will be recorded in the log file.
