Question

Set up nginx with multiple domains and node process

As I was following this tutorial: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/setting-up-multiple-nodejs-applications-using-nginx-vitual-hosts

It doesn’t seem to work, as when i completed all steps and went to the sub domain it says this site cannot be reached, but if i just go to the ip it just shows this: https://imgur.com/a/CeY6iiu

Hi there @selll,

I would recommend following the steps from this tutorial here instead:

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-a-node-js-application-for-production-on-ubuntu-16-04#set-up-nginx-as-a-reverse-proxy-server

Then once you want to start a second Node.js application keep the following things in mind:

  • Make sure that you use a different port for each application
  • Make a copy of the /etc/nginx/sites-available/default to /etc/nginx/sites-available/example2.conf and adjust the values there to match your second application
  • Then enable the second site:
  1. ln -s /etc/nginx/sites-available/example2.conf /etc/nginx/sites-example/example2.conf

Finally, restart Nginx as explained in the tutorial.

Let me know how it goes. Regards, Bobby
