Ingress on Custom Kubernetes

Setting up ingress-nginx on a custom cluster.

There are more than a handful of ways to set up port 80 and 443 web ingress on a custom Kubernetes cluster. Specifically a bare metal cluster. If you are looking to experiment or learn on a non-production cluster, but something more true to production than minikube, I suggest you check out my previous article Production Hobby Cluster, a step-by-step guide for setting up a custom production capable Kubernetes cluster.

Kubernetes - 413 Request Entity Too Large

Configuring the NGINX Ingress Controller

When setting up nginx ingress on Kubernetes for a private Docker Registry, I ran into an error when trying to push an image to it. Error parsing HTTP response: invalid character '<' looking for beginning of value: "<html>\r\n<head><title>413 Request Entity Too Large</title></head>\r\n<body bgcolor=\"white\">\r\n<center><h1>413 Request Entity Too Large</h1></center>\r\n<hr><center>nginx/1.9.14</center>\r\n</body>\r\n</html>\r\n" The “413 Request Entity Too Large” error is something many accustomed to running nginx as a standard web server/proxy. nginx is configured to restrict the size of files it will allow over a post.
