I am trying to set up a production server and am having a little bit of trouble. I am hoping someone can help me. I am new to Nginx. I usually use Apache for setting up my rails servers but decided I wanted some experience with Nginx.
I followed the tutorial located below for setting up my server: http://karolgalanciak.com/blog/2013/07/19/centos-6-4-server-setup-with-ruby-on-rails-nginx-and-postgresql/
Once I was done with this tutorial, I attempted to hit my sample application with a browser and got the 403 error. When I checked the error log I get the following:
2015/04/07 09:59:37 [error] 30642#0: *1 open() “/apps/my_app/public/tasks” failed (2: No such file or directory), client: ##.##.###.##, server: www.lovell.direct, request: “GET /tasks HTTP/1.1”, host: “www.lovell.direct”
I installed lynx to see if I could hit it via a browser without having to hit the web but I then get a 404 error where the error log says the same thing but the host is localhost instead of the domain address.
I saw in some of the questions that the answer was making sure I had a default route which I do. And also to make the files executable which I didn’t understand that. I am not sure why I would need to make my views executable (if I understood correctly).
I am looking to see what might be going on wrong.
Here is what my nginx.conf file look like
