Question

Hosting a website in LEMP Centos 7

Hi, Guys please I’m stuck on hosting my website in LEMP stack on centos 7 for about a week now :( I’ve been through a lot of tutorials but none of them works when it comes to hosting in a custom root. When I access my IP I get the nginx’s welcome but when I try with my domain maydara.ovh I get a 503 error. Now here is my config:

  • I have wordpress and an info.php file on my root
  • The root is owned by nginx
  • My FW & SELinux are disabled
  • I’m using cloudflare as DNS provider nginx.conf
user  nginx;
worker_processes  1;

error_log  /var/log/nginx/error.log warn;
pid        /var/run/nginx.pid;

Problem solved, I removed default.conf then I’ve changed my virtual.conf file to look like this:

server {
    listen       80;
    server_name  maydara.ovh;

    location / {
        root   /var/www/maydara.ovh/htdocs/;
        index  index.php index.html index.htm;
    try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php =404;
    }

    location ~ \.php$ {
        root           /var/www/maydara.ovh/htdocs;
        fastcgi_pass   127.0.0.1:9000;
        fastcgi_index  index.php;
        fastcgi_param  SCRIPT_FILENAME  $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
        include        fastcgi_params;
    }
}
