How to add a static site to a droplet already hosting Wordpress with nginx?
I’m trying to set up nginx on my droplet to allow a static site as well as the existing wordpress install (so 1 wordpress site i.e. wp.com and 1 static site i.e. static.com). I’m trying to follow along with https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-nginx-server-blocks-virtual-hosts-on-ubuntu-16-04, but I’m having trouble figuring out how those changes will affect my current wordpress set-up. Do I need to change variables for my current wordpress install so they point to the right directories? I’m using 14.04, is that tutorial even compatible? The wordpress install I did was using https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-wordpress-on-ubuntu-14-04
