Server

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

Configuration

server:
  read_buffer_size: 4096
  write_buffer_size: 4096
  path: ""
  enable_pprof: false
  enable_expvars: false

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

enable_pprof

type: boolean

default: false

required: no

Enables the go pprof endpoints.

enable_expvars

type: boolean

default: false

required: no

Enables the go expvars endpoints.

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.
