Question

nginx not coming up with ip but works fine with localhost

As I was following the tutorial : https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-nginx-on-ubuntu-20-04

I have succesfully configured the nignx but I am not able to launch nginx server with my public ip but this works fine with local host. Can some one please help me this?

The command: curl -v icanhazip.com doesn’t return the public ip address as well.

Regards Aashay

This is probably an error with port 80. Check your firewall and check if port 80 is allowed to establish connections.

Check firewall status:

sudo ufw status

Allow Nginx Full in the firewall:

sudo ufw allow "Nginx full"

Activate your system firewall:

sudo ufw enable
