nginx reverse proxy redirecting to wrong domain

Posted January 12, 2014 10.2k views
I'm using this tutorial to setup a node site with nginx. It helps create a reverse proxy. this is what my nano /etc/nginx/conf.d/ looks like server { listen 80; server_name; location / { proxy_pass http://localhost:3000; proxy_http_version 1.1; proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade; proxy_set_header Connection 'upgrade'; proxy_set_header Host $host; proxy_cache_bypass $http_upgrade; } } The problem is that when I visit my domain, it's redirecting to another domain that I have setup on the same server. I setup that other domain (a static page) using the nginx virtual hosts tutorial here One difference I noticed is that the nginx reverse proxy tutorial doesn't do any of this symlinking between sites available and sites enabled which the virtual hosts tutorial does sudo ln -s /etc/nginx/sites-available/demo /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/demo Do I have to somehow enable this file? /etc/nginx/conf.d/

Try moving /etc/nginx/conf.d/ to /etc/nginx/sites-enabled, does that fix it?
Thanks, that cleared up the issues with the dns. Maybe that tutorial needs an update
