@sergiofilhow: On the Ghost blog one-click app, the configuration is located at <code>/etc/nginx/conf.d/default.conf</code>

Thanks for your help guys. I’ve found the config file, but it didn’t work. I think that’s something related to the ghostblog config. <br> <br>Here’s the config content. <br> <br>server { <br> #listen 80; ## listen for ipv4; this line is default and implied <br> #listen [::]:80 default ipv6only=on; ## listen for ipv6 <br> <br> root /usr/share/nginx/www; <br> index index.html index.htm; <br> <br> # Make site accessible from http://localhost/ <br> server_name; <br> <br> location / { <br> # First attempt to serve request as file, then <br> # as directory, then fall back to index.html <br> try_files $uri $uri/ /index.html; <br> # Uncomment to enable naxsi on this location <br> # include /etc/nginx/naxsi.rules <br> } <br> <br> location /doc/ { <br> alias /usr/share/doc/; <br> autoindex on; <br> allow; <br> deny all; <br> } <br> <br> location /sites/ { <br> alias /var/www/sites; <br> try_files $uri $uri/ /index.html; <br> } <br> <br> # Only for nginx-naxsi : process denied requests <br> #location /RequestDenied { <br> # For example, return an error code <br> #return 418; <br> #} <br> <br> #error_page 404 /404.html; <br> <br> # redirect server error pages to the static page /50x.html <br> # <br> #error_page 500 502 503 504 /50x.html; <br> #location = /50x.html { <br> # root /usr/share/nginx/www; <br> #} <br> <br> # pass the PHP scripts to FastCGI server listening on <br> # <br> #location ~ .php$ { <br> # fastcgi_split_path_info ^(.+.php)(/.+)$; <br> # # NOTE: You should have “cgi.fix_pathinfo = 0;” in php.ini <br> # <br> # # With php5-cgi alone: <br> # fastcgi_pass; <br> # # With php5-fpm: <br> # fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php5-fpm.sock; <br> # fastcgi_index index.php; <br> # include fastcgi_params; <br> #} <br> <br> # deny access to .htaccess files, if Apache’s document root <br> # concurs with nginx’s one <br> # <br> #location ~ /.ht { <br> # deny all; <br> #} <br>}

It’s usually in <code>/etc/nginx/sites-enabled</code>.
