I want to move this blog to my own NAS because I have plenty enough bandwidth and with Cloudflare as reverse proxy it is secure enough also (and I like to hobby off course 😉 ).
I tried to use the Duplicator WordPress plugin to make a dump of my website and do a restore in the Synology Webstation. But during the database restore in step 2 every time I was getting a 504 gateway timeout after a minute (exactly 60 seconds).
What I could have done was a manual (ftp & database) copy and restore the files. But I was sure I was getting other errors in the future when I had to update WordPress or other plugins. So fixing this timeout issue was the only solution.
On different places on the internet, I found that I had change the Nginx site settings. So I put the timeout settings in the associated “/etc/nginx/conf.d/site.conf” and restart Nginx and restore the database Nginx was still was failing.
proxy_connect_timeout 600s; proxy_send_timeout 600s; proxy_read_timeout 600s; send_timeout 600s;
Then I’ll try to put these lines in the “/etc/nginx/nginx.conf” but when I restart the nginx the settings were overwritten and my changes are gone.
Every time you restart, Nginx Synology make use of a file “/usr/syno/share/nginx/nginx.mustache” to create a new nginx.conf file. I change the lines in that file and *boom* everything was working 🙂
sudo su - vim /usr/syno/share/nginx/nginx.mustache #add these lines send_timeout 600s; proxy_connect_timeout 600s; proxy_send_timeout 600s; proxy_read_timeout 600s; synoservice --restart nginx
If you want to see the current Nginx config
Have fun 🙂
