Server

The server section configures and tunes the http server module Authelia uses.

Configuration

server:
  read_buffer_size: 4096
  write_buffer_size: 4096
  path: ""

Options

read_buffer_size

type: integer

default: 4096

required: no

Configures the maximum request size. The default of 4096 is generally sufficient for most use cases.

write_buffer_size

type: integer

default: 4096

required: no

Configures the maximum response size. The default of 4096 is generally sufficient for most use cases.

path

type: string

default: “”

required: no

Authelia by default is served from the root / location, either via its own domain or subdomain.

Modifying this setting will allow you to serve Authelia out from a specified base path. Please note that currently only a single level path is supported meaning slashes are not allowed, and only alphanumeric characters are supported.

Example: https://auth.example.com/, https://example.com/

server:
  path: ""

Example: https://auth.example.com/authelia/, https://example.com/authelia/

server:
  path: authelia

Additional Notes

Buffer Sizes

The read and write buffer sizes generally should be the same. This is because when Authelia verifies if the user is authorized to visit a URL, it also sends back nearly the same size response as the request. However you’re able to tune these individually depending on your needs.
