Question

Error setting up Flask app - domain returns nginx page: "Further configuration required"

Hi all,

I have my Flask test app from the tutorial up and running, it works well on my IP, I’m super happy about that.

However I have bought a Domain name www.trounceem.co.uk and pointed it at my IP 46.101.73.179 however I get a Nginx splash screen saying my server needs setting up.

its this splash screen: Welcome to nginx! If you see this page, the nginx web server is successfully installed and working. Further configuration is required

Is this something I need to change on my droplet or is it somethign I need to take to my Domain provider??

Thanks in advance for helping a noob.

I’m also seeing this message. Is there a walk-through of how to debug this?

What do you currently have in your nginx configuration? On ubuntu the config file for the server blocks you are hosting would be in /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/
