Nginx Proxy

Most users want to deploy the bark server on the intranet server, and then use Nginx to reverse proxy the bark server; here is a simple Nginx configuration example (we assume that the bark server is listening at

# generated 2020-03-26, Mozilla Guideline v5.4, nginx 1.17.7, OpenSSL 1.1.1d, modern configuration
server {
    listen 80;
    listen [::]:80;
    # Replace with your real domain name.

    return 301 https://$host$request_uri;

server {
    listen 443 ssl http2;
    listen [::]:443 ssl http2;
    # Replace with your real domain name.

    ssl_certificate /path/to/signed_cert_plus_intermediates;
    ssl_certificate_key /path/to/private_key;
    ssl_session_timeout 1d;
    ssl_session_cache shared:MozSSL:10m;  # about 40000 sessions
    ssl_session_tickets off;

    # modern configuration
    ssl_protocols TLSv1.3;
    ssl_prefer_server_ciphers off;

    # HSTS (ngx_http_headers_module is required) (63072000 seconds)
    add_header Strict-Transport-Security "max-age=63072000" always;

    # OCSP stapling
    ssl_stapling on;
    ssl_stapling_verify on;

    # verify chain of trust of OCSP response using Root CA and Intermediate certs
    ssl_trusted_certificate /path/to/root_CA_cert_plus_intermediates;

    # replace with the IP address of your resolver

    location / {

        log_not_found on;
        # Replace with the listening address of the bark server.

        proxy_read_timeout 300;
        proxy_connect_timeout 300;
        proxy_redirect off;

        proxy_set_header Host              $host;
        proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto $scheme;
        proxy_set_header X-Real-IP         $remote_addr;


Use MySQL instead of Bbolt

Just run the server with -dsn=user:[email protected](mysql_host)/bark, it will use MySQL instead of file database Bbolt
