This is awesome.

Basically digitalocean automigrated my droplet when they upgraded it. All my sites suddenly had the ‘Welcome to Nginx’ default message. Wtf…

Anyways, after an hour of googling and experimenting, I came upon this thread which solved everything.

My question is, why does auto-migrating a droplet make Nginx the default webserver listening on port 80??? Thats a serious fail on digitaloceans part, no?

Andrew’s response was right in my ordeal, but Kamal helped me see what was going on initially.

For those of you who get this in the future. What append was, after I rebooted the droplet, the service nginx (in my case) took over port 80, which is my default port for apache. I’ve seen posting about killing whatever service on that port to kick out whatever took your port # or to config a new port # for your vitual hosts. All it took in my case, was stopping the nginx service, and then starting up apache. BOOB… DONE. Thanks for your help everybody.

Was just looking at there, here’s what’s running

tcp 0 0* LISTEN 833/unicorn.conf -E tcp 0 0* LISTEN 776/nginx: worker p

I stopped apache and tried to restart, now I get this

apache2: Could not reliably determine the server’s fully qualified domain name, using for ServerName (13)Permission denied: make_sock: could not bind to address
