AWS Elastic Beanstalk Supports Nginx Proxy Server with Tomcat

Posted on: Aug 24, 2016

You can now run Tomcat applications with an Nginx proxy server in your AWS Elastic Beanstalk environments. Previously, you could only run an Apache proxy server with Tomcat.  

In order to use the Nginx proxy server with Tomcat, your Elastic Beanstalk environment must be running platform version 2.1.5 or above. Visit here to learn more about updating your environment’s platform configuration. 

To enable the Nginx proxy server with your Tomcat application, you must add a configuration file to .ebextensions in the application source bundle that you upload to Elastic Beanstalk. Visit here to learn more about configuring an Nginx proxy server with Tomcat.
