NGINX – jellyseerr.subdomain.conf

The following code should be included in file at the following location: /path/to/dir/swag/config/nginx/proxy-confs/jellyseerr.subdomain.conf

The trick is to copy the jellyseerr.subdomain.conf.sample file to jellyseerr.subdomain.conf. You can create a new file from scratch, but the Swag startup could complain the file does not have to correct timestamp. This is a warning not a “showstopper”.
