This project comes as a pre-built docker image that enables you to easily forward to your websites running at home or otherwise, including free SSL, without having to know too much about Nginx or Letsencrypt.
I created this project to fill a personal need to provide users with a easy way to accomplish reverse proxying hosts with SSL termination and it had to be so easy that a monkey could do it. This goal hasn't changed. While there might be advanced options they are optional and the project should be as simple as possible so that the barrier for entry here is low.
I won't go in to too much detail here but here are the basics for someone new to this self-hosted world.
version: '3' services: app: image: 'jc21/nginx-proxy-manager:latest' restart: unless-stopped ports: - '80:80' - '81:81' - '443:443' volumes: - ./data:/data - ./letsencrypt:/etc/letsencrypt
docker-compose up -d # If using docker-compose-plugin docker compose up -d
When your docker container is running, connect to it on port
81 for the admin interface.
Sometimes this can take a little bit because of the entropy of keys.
