Hi,

Trying to serve the blog of my website with ghost blog on blog.domain.com
And the website with WordPress on www.domain.com

What happens is when I access blog.domain.com, I am getting my blog and when I try to access the website with www.domain.com it redirects me to a virgin ghost …

Domain Config :
A record => blog / ip
A record => www / ip
CNAME => @ / www

Nginx Config :
For wp

server {
        server_name www.domain.com;
        root /var/www/mywpdirectory;

        index index.php;

For Ghost

server {
    listen 80;
    listen [::]:80;

    server_name blog.domain.com;
    root /var/www/myghostdirectory/system/nginx-root;

Anyone has an idea of what could go wrong here ?

Thanks,
Alex

Hello,

Your DNS and the Nginx config look correct. I’ve had a similar issue in the past and I had to just make sure that the document root for both sites have the correct ownership so that Nginx could serve those files.

So in your case, you need to make sure that /var/www/mywpdirectory and /var/www/myghostdirectory/system/nginx-root are actually owned by the Nginx user.
