Hi there,

When I try to load the site through nginx, I don’t get any images back. On the windows server, everything the site needs is under the central folder. The images are in central/images.

Can you make one request for an image -- perhaps
"/central/images/one.png", and show what response does come back?

Your browser should tell you what request it made, and what response
it received. From that, it may be clear where the response comes from
-- maybe the html from the first request includes direct links to
http://backend/central/images/one.png, and the browser cannot access

Good luck with it,
