Connect nginx tcp socket

This shows how to connect your application listening at TCP port <port number> (started with "-p" option in vf) to Nginx web server.

- Step 1:
You will need to edit the Nginx configuration file. For Ubuntu and similar:
sudo vi /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/default
while on Fedora and other systems it might be at:
sudo vi /etc/nginx/nginx.conf

Add the following in the "server {}" section ("/<app path>" is the application path, see request_URL):
location /<app path> { include /etc/nginx/fastcgi_params; fastcgi_pass<port number>; }
- Step 2:
Finally, restart Nginx:
sudo systemctl restart nginx
Note: you must not have any other URL resource that starts with "/<app path>" (such as for example "/<app path>.html" or "/<app path>_something" etc.) as the web server will attempt to pass them as a reverse proxy request, and they will likely not work. If you need to, you can change the application path to be different from "/<app path>", see request_URL.
