Hi Everyone,

I’m using this guide to deploy a Flask application. However, after setting up nignx, I have run into an error where my webpage only shows the nginx welcome message, and is not serving my own files. I already looked at several posts on this issue, and I’m unsure of how to proceed as none of them fixed this issue for me.

Any advice would be appreciated!

  • Can you tell more about your issue? Looks like you haven’t configured your Nginx proxy correctly. Try re-doing the steps from Configuring Nginx to Proxy Requests section in the tutorial.

So I had the default file in the nginx folder. After removing it, it got me a 502 Gateway error, which is because of something else probably.

Sounds like your virtual host not working. You should check nginx error log for clues.
