Multiple sites using nginx

I was able to set up nginx server blocks as per this tutorial. When I try to access the sites through the respective domain names I am directed to the same site. I’m not sure if this is an nginx issue or a dns issue.

I see different content on each of those domains, so it looks like you got it working! It would be great if you could share what the root cause of your issue was and how you fixed it. That would help others who end up at this question.

Your configuration files look correct. One thing many people forget is that you need to restart Nginx after making any changes:

sudo service nginx restart

remove [ default_server ipv6only=on ] in the listen property in the server 2 file. Only one block should be designated as default_server.

Correct configuration: Block one:

server { listen 80; listen [::]:80 default_server ipv6only=on;

Block two:

server { listen 80; listen [::]:80;
