Question

Multiple domains on one droplet?

Posted March 11, 2013 9.2k views
I'm new to VPS. I have a few domains that I would like to host on digitalocean. I read it's possible but don't know how. I have one rails app running (not correctly yet) at www.mikeglaz.com. I just followed the setting up nginx for Rails app instructions. All I did was add the following to my server directive inside nginx.conf to get my rails up running: listen 80; server_name 198.211.104.139; passenger_enabled on; root /home/mike/www/rails_app/public; I have no idea where to go next to set up my 2 other domains. mike

Nevermind, I figured it out. Multiple server directives...
I am looking to do the same thing, is it possible to expound on what you did?
Hey Mike, It would be great to see how you did this? Any chance you could share?

you can create multiple virtualhost on nginx, each vhost will serve your domains. if you are using ubuntu, you can follow this tutorial on how setup virtualhost.
