I have followed the steps on:

I have no modified the Nginx default configuration other than changed the server name according to STEP 2 from the above instructions, using the main domain and the www version.

The rest remains as in:

The certifinate is for a subdoain.
So in STEP5 I successfully obtained certificate for the subdomain

However, when I try to access subdomain it says:

Welcome to nginx!

If you see this page, the nginx web server is successfully installed and working. Further configuration is required.

Thank you for using nginx.

In the droplet I have an app developed with Vue.js installed on an Ubuntu 16

I was wondering if someone could help me with this, because there is something that I am missing.

Hi there @Bubusi,

It sounds like that the wrong Nginx server block configuration file is being used.

I would recommend checking the content of your /etc/nginx/sites-enabled folder and verify that you’ve change the server name in the correct file.

Feel free to share the rest of the Nginx server block configuration files here.

Let me know how it goes.
