Rate limit problem

(Kaoff) #1

Hey there :slight_smile:

I’m trying to develop a dashboard in which members of our team can see and validate tasks directly.

But I got a “Too Many Request” error while loading my topics.

Is there any way to bypass this limit ?

You may add this code to /var/discourse/containers/app.yml into run section:

    - exec:
           - sed -i 's/limit_conn connperip 20/limit_conn connperip 20000/g' /etc/nginx/conf.d/discourse.conf
           - sed -i 's/limit_req zone=flood burst=12/limit_req zone=flood burst=12000/g' /etc/nginx/conf.d/discourse.conf
           - sed -i 's/limit_req zone=bot burst=100/limit_req zone=bot burst=100000/g' /etc/nginx/conf.d/discourse.conf

Then rebuild app. This will replace default limits x1000 times. Not sure, but also you may need to increase values for Rate Limits /admin/site_settings/category/rate_limits in forum settings.

Thanks, I’ll try that. :slight_smile:

EDIT : Nope. Doesn’t work. :frowning:

We’re currently checking with @Shauni what is the problem. :wink:

Is there a way to simply disable Nginx’ rate limiting ?

Not fully secure, but we are in a closed environment… So it can make the work done for the moment.

Thanks for your help !

You may change nginx limits on working docker.

  1. Enter your app: /var/discourse/launcher enter app
  2. Edit nginx config using nano or vim vim /etc/nginx/conf.d/discourse.conf, set limits at the top of the file.
  3. Exit from app back to OS: press Ctrl+d or type exit
  4. Restart nginx: docker exec app nginx -s reload
    Now your forum has new limits.

These limits will be reset to defaults on next rebuild. To set permanent limits, edit app.yml as described above.

Hey there.

We tried to comment all rate limit lines, it did nothing. :confused:

Isn’t there a way to just disable Nginx limits ?
