Hi @KFSys, Thanks for your help… I have checked /etc/nginx/sites-enabled but I am not sure what I should do

Can you let me know which tutorial I can follow?

Hi @20thguru,

You’ll need to configure Ngin x to know your is suppose to open your Django project.

What you need to do is go to /etc/nginx/sites-enabled in there open the config you created following the tutorial and in the server_name line add your domain. Then save the file and restart nginx. That should do it.
