Native Nginx error page instead of custom is shown for 413 errors (404 works fine).

http {

uwsgi_intercept_errors on;
error_page 404 /error.404.html;
error_page 413 /error.413.html;

server {

listen 443 ssl http2;
listen [::]:443 ssl http2;
root /www;

location /error {



location / {

uwsgi_pass unix:/run/uwsgi.sock

Works fine here.

Please make sure that:

  • there are no other error_page directives on lower levels, quoting docs:

    These directives are inherited from the previous level if and only if there are no error_page directives defined on the current level.

  • the page in question actually exists (try to request it directly with internal removed).

Full test configuration:

http {
    access_log /dev/stderr combined;

    server {
        listen      8080;

        proxy_intercept_errors on;
        error_page 413 /error413;

        client_max_body_size 1g;

        location / {

        location = /error413 {
            return 200 "location /error413\n";

    server {
        listen      8081;
        client_max_body_size 1;

Test, which shows that custom error page is returned:

> telnet localhost 8080
Trying ::1...
telnet: connect to address ::1: Connection refused
