Using Nginx as a reverse proxy

If you want Nginx to serve your Gitea instance you can the following server section inside the http section of nginx.conf:

server {
    listen 80;
    server_name git.example.com;

    location / {
        proxy_pass http://localhost:3000;
    }
}

Using Nginx with a Sub-path as a reverse proxy

In case you already have a site, and you want Gitea to share the domain name, you can setup Nginx to serve Gitea under a sub-path by adding the following server section inside the http section of nginx.conf:

server {
    listen 80;
    server_name git.example.com;

    location /git/ { # Note: Trailing slash
        proxy_pass http://localhost:3000/; # Note: Trailing slash
    }
}

Then set [server] ROOT_URL = http://git.example.com/git/ in your configuration.

Using Apache HTTPD as a reverse proxy

If you want Apache HTTPD to serve your Gitea instance you can add the following to you Apache HTTPD configuration (usually located at /etc/apache2/httpd.conf in Ubuntu):

<VirtualHost *:80>
    ...
    ProxyPreserveHost On
    ProxyRequests off
    ProxyPass / http://localhost:3000/
    ProxyPassReverse / http://localhost:3000/
</VirtualHost>

Note: The following Apache HTTPD mods must be enabled: proxy, proxy_http

Using Apache HTTPD with a Sub-path as a reverse proxy

In case you already have a site, and you want Gitea to share the domain name, you can setup Apache HTTPD to serve Gitea under a sub-path by adding the following to you Apache HTTPD configuration (usually located at /etc/apache2/httpd.conf in Ubuntu):

    </Proxy>

    ProxyPass /git http://localhost:3000 # Note: no trailing slash after either /git or port
    ProxyPassReverse /git http://localhost:3000 # Note: no trailing slash after either /git or port
</VirtualHost>

Then set [server] ROOT_URL = http://git.example.com/git/ in your configuration.
