Question

How to setup vhosts in the DNS page in settings

I’ve setup an ubuntu server with LEMP and phpmyadmin and I’ve managed to setup an nginx vhost using your tutorial. However, I couldn’t see my vhost site until I added an entry on the DNS setup page. Now I see a site, but it’s the index.html file in my default web root, not my new vhost web root. But, there’s nowhere to specify the web root on the DNS setup page, so how do I let DNS know about the site, but then make sure requests go to the right web root on my server?

I’m new to this stuff, but I have to say the tutorials and interface (other than this issue I’m confused on) are great and I’m having fun learning!

Looks like that’s the case. Thanks!

I got it working. I was having issues with a server block that didn’t have the ‘www’ part in it. Live and learn. ;) <br> <br>So, do I need to create an entry on the DNS page for each domain/subdomain that I add to my server before it’ll be browsable?
