Question

External Subdomain to directory in my droplet

Well…

I have my domain primarysite.com of my droplet…i create a directory /livezilla/…

I want add a external subdomain to this directory:

I have in: /etc/nginx/sites-avaliable:

primarysite.com:

server {
        listen 80 default_server;
        listen [::]:80 default_server ipv6only=on;

        root /usr/share/nginx/html;
        index index.php index.html index.htm;

        # Make site accessible from http://localhost/
        server_name http://primarysite.com;

        location / {
                # First attempt to serve request as file, then
                # as directory, then fall back to displaying a 404.
                #try_files $uri $uri/ =404;
                try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?q=$uri&args;
                # Uncomment to enable naxsi on this location
                # include /etc/nginx/naxsi.rules
        }
}

AND

subdomain.external.com:

server {
        listen 80;
        listen [::]:80;
        server_name www.subdomain.external.com subdomain.external.com;
        root /usr/share/nginx/html/livezilla/;
        index index.php index.html index.htm;
}

After :

ln -s /etc/nginx/sites-available/subdomain.external.com /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/subdomain.external.com

and

ln -s /etc/nginx/sites-available/primarysite.com /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/primarysite.com

service nginx restart

[OK]…

but doens’t work…

Just primarysite.com works…

I forgot something?

primarysite.com (my droplet) ip eg: 1.2.3.4 subdomain.external.com ping directing to 1.2.3.4 (exactly the ip of my droplet)

but the subdomain.external.com is redirecting for 5.6.7.8. What’s happen?

subdomain.external.com redirecting to external.com… but with the ping it displays the correct ip of my droplet…

When you say it doesn’t work, what is the exact behavior you see? Is it redirecting back to the primary default or something else?
