apache test page shows up on non-apache server

Ubuntu 16.04 Nginx Apache

Hello everyone, I’m having a very peculiar problem right now. I’ve set up a Django server with Gunicorn and Nginx on Ubuntu 16.04. But for some reason, the test page for Apache shows up, even though I haven’t installed Apache anywhere on my server. I have no idea what’s going on - could someone help me get the test page off the server?

Hi @leebr1

Which a domain or an IP, we cannot do anything but recommending looking at your Nginx configuration, clearing your browser cache or clearing your DNS cache.

  • I’ve put the server name on my configuration files as the domain name, but I’ve set up the domain name on Digital Ocean’s site. I tried entering the IP address, but that gives the same test page.

I recently had same problem. My issue was related to Nginx configuration. I had set my droplet IP set as server name. Changing it to domain helped. Thanks for suggestions.
