Assume you are configuring nginx as a reverse proxy. Whenever you access the application using nginx, the page fails to load. When you attempt to access it directly via the backend it works, which log should you check in this scenario?

    • “/var/log/nginx/access_log”

    • “/var/log/nginx/access.log”

    • “/var/log/nginx/error.log”

    • “/var/log/nginx/error_log”


Suppose a web portal is running on several Weblogic application servers in the backend and you are required to configure nginx to perform a health check on each application server before forwarding the request by using a health test location on the backend. If the backend returns an HTTP response of 200, nginx may forward the request. Which block/ parameter will be used to describe the valid response of the health check?
