  • Hello dmsumon,

    I'm got same problem, but i've found a solution from this link http://stackoverflow.com/a/22513456/3086112

    Just add simple configuration on your nginx server config.

    server {
    servername 107.170.126.xxx;
    # you can add other server
    name if you need other IPs
    # or domain names such as without the www

        add_header X-Frame-Options "SAMEORIGIN";
        return 301 $scheme://www.mydomain.com$request_uri;

This worked for me:

server {
server_name 107.170.xxx.xxx;
return 301 http://mydomain.com;
