Question

Configure subdomain of different host on nginx server which is configured on some other host.

I am trying to configure host name like www.abc.com on my already setup of nginx server with server_name like www.test.com. Both test.com and abc.com have different ssl certificates.

I have configured server for www.abc.com like below

server {
	
	listen 443 ssl;
	server_name www.abc.com;	

		
	ssl_certificate /usr/local/etc/nginx/ssl/self1.crt;
	ssl_certificate_key /usr/local/etc/nginx/ssl/self1.key;	

	location /temp {
		proxy_pass https://www.test.com/;
	}
}

I am curious whether this is the proper way to achieve this or there is any better way. Thanks.

Hi there @akshaybande81,

If you want to show the same content on www.abc.com as you do on test.com, what you could do is to copy the existing Server Block that you have for test.com and just change the server_name.

That way the two sites will have separate Nginx server blocks and separate SSL certificates, but they will be showing the same content.
