Have a webapp on example.com:4567 - Redirect to subdomain with nginx?
I’m setting up a forum (NodeBB to be exact) on my Ubuntu 14.04 vps and have it up on example.com:4567. How would I go about routing this to forums.example.com using nginx? Here’s what I have for my DNS:
$ORIGIN example.com. $TTL 1800 example.com. IN SOA ns1.digitalocean.com. hostmaster.example.com. 000000000 00000 0000 000000 0000 example.com. 1800 IN NS ns1.digitalocean.com. example.com. 1800 IN NS ns2.digitalocean.com. example.com. 1800 IN NS ns3.digitalocean.com. example.com. 1800 IN A 18.104.22.168 www.example.com. 1800 IN CNAME example.com. *.example.com. 1800 IN CNAME example.com. forums.example.com. 1800 IN CNAME example.com. www.forums.example.com. 1800 IN CNAME forums.example.com.
I have no clue what to use in my nginx config. I tried just doing a basic listen on port 4567 with a new sites-enabled config (as if it were a completely different domain) but forums.example.com would still just redirect to example.com.
