How to change the default nginx page to my web application home page

August 25, 2015 16.1k views
Nginx Apache Java Configuration Management

Even after updating the default server root, the application is not loading by default.

server {
listen 80 default_server;

root /var/lib/tomcat7/webapps/webappfolder/;
index index.html index.htm

servername ipaddress;

location / {
proxypass http://localhost:8080;
proxy
setheader X-Forwarded-Host $host;
proxy
setheader X-Forwarded-Server $host;
proxy
setheader X-Forwarded-For $proxyaddxforwarded_for;
}

i can access using my web applicaiton using the url - http://ip_address/web_app_folder but not with the url - http://ip_address/

Appreciate any help.

After editing nginx, did you restart/reload nginx? If you didn't, it won't work:

(sudo) service nginx restart

If that doesn't work, are you sure you got the proper directory? Check it once more where your default page file is.
