how to set up nginx server blocks (virtual hosts)?

  • Posted November 7, 2013

I have a Ubuntu LAMP server with nginx as the front end proxy to access I need to set up two more accounts/virtual hosts on the same server (, pointing to the same IP. I have these subdomain names created and pointing to the DigitalOcean server IP. However, I can’t use the ‘How To Set Up Apache Virtual Hosts on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS’ tutorial since I am using nginx as the front end proxy. I understand that nginx doesn’t have virtual hosts, but instead uses server blocks. I’m looking for any guidance/tutorial on how to do this.
