Payload too large. This is because the default maximum body size in the ingress controller is configured to a rather small default value.
Luckily, there is an annotion you can add to the ingress definition which can change this value. The annotation you need to use is called
You can configure it as follows:
apiVersion: extensions/v1beta1 kind: Ingress metadata: annotations: nginx.ingress.kubernetes.io/proxy-body-size: "0" nginx.ingress.kubernetes.io/proxy-read-timeout: "600" nginx.ingress.kubernetes.io/proxy-send-timeout: "600" kubernetes.io/tls-acme: 'true' name: docker-registry namespace: docker-registry spec: tls: - hosts: - registry.<your domain> secretName: registry-tls rules: - host: registry.<your domain> http: paths: - backend: serviceName: docker-registry servicePort: 5000 path: /
There are many more annotations you can use. You can find the full list here.
