Question on Nginx set-up.

I’m trying to set up Nginx on my server. In the initial set up I have to do ip -4 addr show scope global

So I do that and I get:

2: eth0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc fq_codel state UP group default qlen 1000 inet 157.245.5.153/20 brd 157.245.15.255 scope global eth0 valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever inet 10.17.0.5/16 brd 10.17.255.255 scope global eth0 valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever 3: eth1: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc fq_codel state UP group default qlen 1000 inet 10.108.0.2/20 brd 10.108.15.255 scope global eth1 valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever

for eth0: which IP address do I need to use?

Hi @b3699d04c0e6-4b4f-afaf-3bd295,

You can see the IP address in the eth0 line. As has already been mentioned it’s 157.245.5.153, the /20 part is what range this IP is from. Usually, you should be able to see the Droplet’s IP with

hostname -i

command as well.

Hi there,

Based on the output that you’ve shared, the following should be the public IPv4 address of your Droplet:

157.245.5.153

Hope that this helps!

Best,

Bobby
