How to use RootRedirect to serve start page for gateway

I was trying to set up an ipfs gateway in such a way that it serves some kind of start page. I found a config option RootRedirect which seems to be just what I was looking for. However, whatever I put in there leads to ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS when opening http://localhost:8080

Is it documented somewhere what to put in there? I think ipfs.io is using this option. I found some info about the existence of the option in https://github.com/ipfs/go-ipfs/blob/master/docs/config.md , but it just tells me that the option exists, not what to put there.

Is there some better documentation somewhere?

I too would like more clarification about this issue.

What we are doing on https://siderus.io is a nginx instance to serve the root and reverse proxy the IPFS and IPNS calls on the gateway

Waiting to something better/working

Thanks.

We also got an nginx gw internally at https://actyx.io/en , so I guess we will do that as well. I was just wondering what the damn parameter is for :slight_smile:
