Question

How to configure my domain in nginx

Hi, I am trying to upload my web application then I’ve used your tutorial “https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-nginx-on-centos-8” in the Step - 6 as example I created my domain.conf but after to saving and closing the file I tested the nginx to see syntax errors and I getting this error:

nginx: [emerg] "server" directive is not allowed here in /etc/nginx/conf.d/itcmedbr.com.conf:1
nginx: configuration file /etc/nginx/nginx.conf test failed

Below my conf file:

vi /etc/nginx/conf.d/itcmedbr.com.conf
1 server {
      2         listen 80;
      3         listen [::]:80;
      4
      5         root /var/www/itcmedbr.com/html;
      6         index index.jsp;
      7
      8         server_name itcmedbr.com www.itcmedbr.com;
      9
     10         location / {
     11                 try_files $uri $uri/ =404;
     12         }
     13 }
~

This is my nginx.conf:

Heya @cezarapulchro,

Try the following Nginx configuration file

server {
    listen 80;
    listen [::]:80;

    root /var/www/itcmedbr.com/html;
    index index.jsp;

    server_name itcmedbr.com www.itcmedbr.com;

    location / {
        try_files $uri $uri/ /index.html;
    }

    # Additional configuration for handling other static files, if any

    # Error pages configuration (optional)
    error_page 404 /404.html;
    error_page 500 502 503 504 /50x.html;
    location = /50x.html {
        root /usr/share/nginx/html;
    }

    # Logging (optional but recommended)
    access_log /var/log/nginx/itcmedbr.com.access.log;
    error_log /var/log/nginx/itcmedbr.com.error.log;
}

That should do the trick.

I noticed the numbers on the left(line numbers). Make sure those do not actually exist in the file as well.
