Cant deploy my static web App which includes some PHP scripts

Hi All,

Can anyone help me how to configure Nginx conf file? I am trying to deploy my static web app which consists of a small PHP script. I followed tutorials given on digital community portal but not able to figure it out. I added index.php but as of I am not able to execute the file and every time asks me to download.

Hi @viraljayeshjoshi94,

It seems you’ve deployed all your Nginx server blocks in the /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/default file. For this to work, you’ll need to create a separate .conf file for your domain.

If you are uncertain how to do this, DigitalOcean has a pretty good tutorial on how to actually achieve exactly what you need.

In the tutorial for demonstration purposes,two domains are going to be set up with Nginx. The domain names used in this guide are and I believe it will be really beneficial and will help you create the new conf for yourself as well.
