We want a clean configuration, so no client body temp in disk.

Our setup did not even create the path to store files, but it has been "auto-specified" on configuration.

nginx.conf has configured:

proxy_request_buffering off;

But still, we get an error:

nginx: the configuration file /opt/nginx-thanos-fe/conf/nginx.conf syntax is ok
nginx: [emerg] mkdir() "/opt/thanos/nginx-1.12.1/client_body_temp" failed (13: Permission denied)

Resolution: wontfix
Status: newclosed

Even with proxy_request_buffering off there are plenty cases when nginx will have to read buffer client's body to disk - for example, when a client uses chunked transfer encoding, and proxy_http_version is 1.0; or when using fastcgi instead of proxy; or when using DAV module. As such, directives to control reading request body are completely independent from directives to controlling how to proxy requests, and even with proxy_request_buffering off nginx will still try to create client_body_temp_path directory in case it will be used. There are no plans to change this.
