Question

Run rails app on IP instead of port.

Hello, I deployed my rails app on my droplet using this tutorial: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-deploy-a-rails-app-with-git-hooks-on-ubuntu-14-04 -> with git hooks, puma and nginx.

But when my app is running I can only access it using http://my_ip_address:3000, when 3000 is app’s localhost port.

How to configure app in order to get it under http://my_ip_address?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Read the “Install and Configure Nginx” part of the tutorial you linked.

You’ll need to change server_name in your server block as what you have now will most likely cause NGINX to fail when attempting to start/restart/reload.

This:

server_name http://46.101.198.190/;

Should be (as per the tutorial):

server_name localhost;

Other such valid configuration would be:

server_name domain.com www.domain.com;

or

server_name domain.com *.domain.com;

or

server_name hostname.domain.com www.hostname.domain.com;

ect.

After changes have been made and saved, you’ll need to reload NGINX using:

systemctl reload nginx

or

service nginx reload
