How to setup a Subdomain for Django Droplet on Nginx Server?

Hello Everyone. I have followed this amazing tutorial https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-django-with-postgres-nginx-and-gunicorn-on-ubuntu-16-04 and successfully deployed it to my nginx server.

Now I can access by ipv4-address. but I want to setup a subdomain to this django droplet.

So I created a new record with subdomain eg. dev.domainname.com

but I can see only this screen

Welcome to nginx!

If you see this page, the nginx web server is successfully installed and working. Further configuration is required.

For online documentation and support please refer to nginx.org. Commercial support is available at nginx.com.

Thank you for using nginx.

How can I do now?

Thanks for your any advice.

Thanks

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?

Thanks

Hi @20thguru,

You’ll need to configure Ngin x to know your dev.domainname.com 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.
