Multiple domains on one droplet?

March 11, 2013 6.5k 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; 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.

This tutorial shows you how to set up a new directory, how to grant the correct permissions, how to add content to a new page, how to turn on virtual hosting, and how to, if needed, set up local hosts. Virtual Hosts are used to run more than one website or domain off of a single server and IP address. When used with nginx, virtual hosts are called Server Blocks. This tutorial covers setting up server blocks on an Ubuntu server.
