For SSL/HTTPS support, you would need to place a reverse proxy in front of FileRun.

Here's an example: HAProxy on Ubuntu

Make sure your reverse proxy passes HTTP_X_FORWARDED_PROTO, HTTP_X_FORWARDED_SSL and HTTP_X_FORWARDED_PORT. FileRun looks for any of these to determine if the URLs should start using HTTP or HTTPS and to forward requests via the correct HTTP port.

When using NGINX, just add this line in your conf file, in the location block: proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto https;

More info about NPM here:

Assuming you have already installed FileRun using Docker and docker-compose, simply add the new service to your docker-compose.yml file:

  image: 'jc21/nginx-proxy-manager:latest'
  container_name: npm
    - '80:80'
    - '81:81'
    - '443:443'
    - /filerun/proxy/data:/data
    - /filerun/proxy/letsencrypt:/etc/letsencrypt

Additionally, make sure the FileRun container runs on a non-default port, such as 8080:

    image: filerun/filerun
      - "8080:80"

And fire it up:

docker-compose up -d

Make sure FileRun is up and running (http://your-site:8080)

Access Nginx Proxy Manager admin console in your browser by port number 81 (http://your-site:81)

Use the default credentials to sign in:

Password: changeme

Go to HostsProxy Hosts and click Add Proxy Host.

If FileRun runs on a different server, fill with the IP of your FileRun installation and the customized port number (8080).

If you're running via the same docker-compose file, use the hostname web and port number 80 and the proxying will be done via the local Docker network.

Under the SSL tab, choose Request a new SSL certificate

And click Save

NPM should take care of the rest, fetching a SSL certificate for you, installing it, and configuring an SSL proxy to your FileRun installation.

You should now be able to open in your browser.

At the time of writing this guide, NPM has a bug which causes the reported PORT number to be wrong. Please see the discussion and suggested workaround here:

Additionaly, you might need to add the this custom configuration to the reverse proxy under the Advanced tab.
