How to convert nginx.conf to Caddyfile? Multiple pathes to one proxy

1. Caddy version (caddy version):

Caddy 2.0

2. How I run Caddy:

I run caddy in official Caddy Docker container

a. System environment:


d. My complete Caddyfile or JSON config: {
    root * /app/static

    reverse_proxy /admin/* api:80
    reverse_proxy /api/* api:80


3. The problem I’m having:

I have NGINX config and I need to convert it to Caddyfile. In example above I convert static part of site and django admin part. But api-path not working. What I do wrong & how to convert nginx.conf right?

upstream django {
    server api:80;

server {
    listen 80 default_server;
    return 444;

server {
    listen 80;
    listen [::]:80;

    client_max_body_size 4G;
    keepalive_timeout 5;

        location ~ ^/(api|admin)/ {
          proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
          proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto $scheme;
          proxy_set_header Host $http_host;
          proxy_redirect off;
          proxy_pass http://django;

        location / {
            root /app/static;
            index index.html;
            try_files $uri $uri/ =404;

Which version exactly? You can run docker exec <caddy-container-name> caddy version to check. You should be using the latest, v2.3.0.

What do you mean by “not working”? What behaviour are you seeing exactly? What’s in your logs?
