I have a droplet and a website. I can upload my html files to my droplet and see them correctly.
But I just want to see my web pages like this; 220.127.116.11***/home*** 18.104.22.168***/about*** 22.214.171.124***/test*** etc
and not like this; 126.96.36.199/home***.html*** 188.8.131.52/about***.asp*** 184.108.40.206/test***.php*** etc
How can i do that? Is that possible with nginx settings?

You can set the default type to text/html. Keep in mind that this will serve every file that nginx doesn’t know the type for as html.
It really depends on your application and how it’s configured to handle requests, more specifically:
The most basic way to handle this would be to use
locationblock. Keep in mind, this will rewrite ALL URI’s and attempt to match each request to an existing HTML file. If that file does not exist, an error will result (more specifically, a 500 error). With this in mind, it’s important that you setup your error pages as well and not exclusively rely on this location block (example of this below as well).
This will allow:
To setup the error files, you’d place the following above your location block:
Relying on this type of rewrite also affects directories, too. So if a request comes through such as:
… and the directory
/me/does not exist, an error will result, so you’ll need to be able to handle them by creating potential the directories.
Thanks alot guys!
