After building...

FROM centos-7-nginx-es-export:latest

USER www-data

WORKDIR /etc/nginx

#ENTRYPOINT ["/opt/nginx-es-1.6.1-ssl1.0.1j/sbin/nginx"]
#CMD ['-c', "/etc/nginx/nginx.conf", '-g', "daemon off; client_body_temp_path /data/client_temp;"]

EXPOSE 80
EXPOSE 443


Running the following...

sudo docker run -v /var/log/nginx:/var/log/nginx:rw -v /etc/nginx/sites-enabled:/etc/nginx/sites-enabled:ro -i -t centos-7-nginx-es -c /etc/nginx/nginx.conf -g "daemon off;"

Yields...

nginx: [emerg] mkdir() "/opt/nginx-es-1.6.1-ssl1.0.1j/client_body_temp" failed (13: Permission denied)

How can I troubleshoot and correct this permissions problem?

It's not a docker issue then.

Hello Jan,

I did come across this page, however, the URL near "The directive required is client_body_temp_path and it's documented here." links to a site that is no longer active.  Do you have any insight as to the specific configuration changes required in order to remedy this?

Thank you
