Hi, I have an App running a Hugo site and I have a droplet running a HTML site (with PHP). I would like to have my App accessible from the main domain all variations of - mysite.com | www.mysite.com | https://mysite.com and have the HTML site available as a subfolder - www.mysite.com/subsite
I have the app working and the droplet working, but can’t figure out how to integrate the two.

To serve the HTML site as a subfolder of your main domain, you can use reverse proxy functionality in Nginx:
To do this, first, you need to make sure your Droplet with the HTML site has a domain name or a subdomain pointing to it.
For example, you can create a subdomain like
htmlsite.mysite.comand point it to the droplet’s IP address.
Next, you need to configure Nginx on the server running the Hugo site to proxy requests for the subfolder to the droplet with the HTML site. You’ll need to modify the Nginx configuration file, typically found at
/etc/nginx/sites-available/default. Here’s an example configuration:
Make sure to replace
/path/to/hugo/publicwith the correct path to your Hugo site’s
http://htmlsite.mysite.comwith the correct domain or subdomain of your HTML site.
After modifying the configuration, restart the Nginx service:
Now, your main domain should serve the Hugo site, and the
/subsitepath should proxy requests to the droplet running the HTML site.
