Jitsi docker behind reverse proxy


I was trying for a long time to set up the jitsi docker with an NGINX reverse proxy.

But for this I had to also proxy “location /http-bind” and “location /xmpp-websocket”. However these must be proxied to port 5280 (xmpp), but this port is not binded to the outside in the docker-compose file.

Why is this? Which I mean, why are ports 5222,5347,5280 as “expose” and not as “ports”?

So I manage to kind of solve this by defining my reverse proxy nginx as:

location / {
    ssi on;
    proxy_pass http://PUBLICIP:HTTPPORT;
    proxy_set_header Host $host;
    proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
    proxy_redirect off;

# xmpp websockets
location /xmpp-websocket {
    proxy_pass http://PUBLICIP:HTTPPORT/xmpp-websocket;
    proxy_http_version 1.1;
    proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
    proxy_set_header Connection "upgrade";
    proxy_set_header Host $host;
    tcp_nodelay on;

so now my question is, why do I need “location /xmpp-websocket”? shouldn’t this redirect be correctly handeled by “localtion /” ?
