Problem with Xenforo and NGINX

    I have a problem with XenForo and I think it's up to my NGINX server configuration.
    The problem is that sometimes the Googlebot can not access to resources such as images or scripts.
    Googlebot says the images are (Vorr├╝bergehend nicht erreichbar) currently not available.

    Here's an example.

    It looks as if there is a limit for loading files.

    Here my nginx.conf

    Code:
    user www-data;
    worker_processes 8;
    pid /run/nginx.pid;
    
    events {
        worker_connections 4000;
         multi_accept on;
         use epoll;
    }
    
    http {
    geoip_country /usr/share/GeoIP/GeoIP.dat;
    map $geoip_country_code $allowed_country {

            fastcgi_intercept_errors on;
        } 
    }
    
    The problem occurs only when the first access. IF I repeat the rendering of the page, there is no problem.

    Please can someone help me?

    No limiting in any of those configs. Perhaps googlebot is sourcing from one of your geo blocked countries?
    Check your '/var/log/nginx/my-website.de.access.log' for the request from Googlebot and see what your server is returning?

    Do you allow Gravatar? Sometimes they have issues.

    @Mouth is right about the cause of this issue. You have to exclude Google bots from geo location blocking.

    This is pretty common issue and you will easily able to find a lot of solutions on nginx forums but to get you started here's what might help you to exclude Google bots

    Code:
    #Whitelist crawlers
    map $http_user_agent $crawler {
    default 0;
    
    ~*(AdsBot-Google|Googlebot-Mobile|Googlebot-Image|Mediapartners-Google|
    bingbot|Feedfetcher-Google|Googlebot|Yahoo\ !Slurp|msnbot|msnbot-media|
    YahooCacheSystem) 1;
    }
    # You'll also probably need to override for specific IP addresses too...
    geo $whitelisted {
    default $crawler;
    }

    This code is for your nginx.conf file.

    I do not get it. The problem is still there.

    So I checked the the this currently not available files in the access log an I found vor the Google Search Console bot a code 200. That's crazy.
