WordPress Ghost Ubuntu 16.04


Trying to serve the blog of my website with ghost blog on
And the website with WordPress on

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

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

Nginx Config :
For wp

server {
        root /var/www/mywpdirectory;

        index index.php;

For Ghost

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

    root /var/www/myghostdirectory/system/nginx-root;

Anyone has an idea of what could go wrong here ?

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.
