Upload error - maybe nginx error?

Hello,

I upgrade my Peertube in last version 3.3.0
Since then, I can’t upload a video : I have a 500 error
No logs but I find errors in console.
I dig a little and I find that my nginx conf is not similar to the one in peertube code. I don’t know what to do to move forward and clean things to make it work :slight_smile:

Console error :
XHRPOST https://tube.grap.coop/api/v1/videos/upload-resumable [HTTP/2 500 Internal Server Error 7ms]

And

So we can see that I add upload-resumable as expected during upgrade in 3.2 :man_shrugging:

Thanks for any help :slight_smile:

Hello,

Try to check nginx logs to find why it returns a 500 error. It’s also weird you don’t find peertube logs regarding this error.

Yiha, victoire :tada:

Indeed, nginx log tells me

2021/07/23 10:20:51 [error] 445198#445198: *123 could not find named location "@api", client: <myip>, server: tube.grap.coop, request: "POST /api/v1/videos/upload-resumable HTTP/2.0", host: "tube.grap.coop", referrer: "https://tube.grap.coop/videos/upload"

So the difference between my nginx conf (coming from old versions I guess) and the right conf was the source of the error.

I replace :

 location / {
    proxy_pass http://127.0.0.1:9000;
    proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
    proxy_set_header Host $host;
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;

    # This is the maximum upload size, which roughly matches the maximum size of a video file
    # you can send via the API or the web interface. By default this is 8GB, but administrators
    # can increase or decrease the limit. Currently there's no way to communicate this limit
    # to users automatically, so you may want to leave a note in your instance 'about' page if
    # you change this.
    #
    # Note that temporary space is needed equal to the total size of all concurrent uploads.
    # This data gets stored in /var/lib/nginx by default, so you may want to put this directory
    # on a dedicated filesystem.
    #
    client_max_body_size 8G;

    proxy_connect_timeout       600;
    proxy_send_timeout          600;
    proxy_read_timeout          600;
    send_timeout                600;
  }

with

  location @api {
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
    proxy_set_header Host            $host;
    proxy_set_header X-Real-IP       $remote_addr;

    client_max_body_size  8G; # default is 1M

    proxy_connect_timeout 10m;
    proxy_send_timeout    10m;
    proxy_read_timeout    10m;
    send_timeout          10m;

    proxy_pass http://127.0.0.1:9000;
  }

  location / {
    try_files /dev/null @api;
  }

for having @api defined
And i restart nginx and it works fine

Thank you for the morning help :slight_smile: :coffee:

What was your previous peertube version? Looking at your nginx file, I think you upgraded several major versions at once… And you probably missed some actions to do (see peertube’s changelogs). And you probably forgot upgrading your nginx and systemd configuration (see at the bottom of PeerTube documentation )
