I was able to solve this issue by below steps:

myproject here is depend on what you previously setup.

  1. Edit: $ sudo vim /etc/nginx/sites-available/myproject

  2. Find: server { listen 80; server_name server_domain_or_IP;

  3. Replace server_domain_or_IP with your domain name.

  4. Restart: $ sudo service apache2 restart

I’m having the exact same issue. I can’t get rid of the apache default page. I’m using apache as a reverse proxy only, so no content is served by apache itself. The reverse proxy works for any URL requested except for the main /, in that case I always get the default page. Already tried all mentioned things here.

how if i want to open using IP Address?
