I'd like to test if I set up my configs properly and if they're working.
Should it work if I send a GET request with the X-Accel-Redirect header?
I am using Mozilla plugin "Modify Headers". I have added: "X-Accel-Redirect /index" and my request on the server is:
(captured with tcpdump)
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:11.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/11.0
Accept: text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,*/*;q=0.8
Accept-Language: en-us,en;q=0.5
Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate
Connection: keep-alive
X-Accel-Redirect: /index
My vhost config in nginx is:
server {
listen 80;
server_name; #it's added in my hosts file
location / {
alias /var/www;

Path is:
ls -lh /var/www/
Error is 404 Not Found - nothing logged in error.log though ...

My environment would actually be Apache as frontend which passes requests with X-Accel-Redirect to Nginx which serves static files.
But right now I'm in testing phase.
