In this section we'll explain how to deploy a vantage6 server.
vantage6 uses Flask as backbone, together with flask-socketio for websocket support. The server runs as a standalone process (listening on its own ip address/port).
From version 3.2+ it is possible to horizontally scale the server (This upgrade is also made available to version 2.3.4)
Documentation on how to deploy it will be shared here. Reach out to us on Discord for now.
Because there is no message broker used for the websocket channel, it is currently not possible to horizontally scale the vantage6-server
There are many deployment options, so these examples are not complete and exhaustive.

Below a basic setup. Note that SSL is not configured in this example.
server {
# Public port
listen 80;
server_name _;
# vantage6-server. In the case you use a sub-path here, make sure
# to foward also it to the proxy_pass
location /subpath {
include proxy_params;
# internal ip and port
# Allow the websocket traffic
location / {
include proxy_params;
proxy_http_version 1.1;
proxy_buffering off;
proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
proxy_set_header Connection "Upgrade";
When you Configure the server, make sure to include the /subpath that has been set in the NGINX configuration into the api_path setting (e.g. api_path: /subpath/api)
