Question

Subdomain and Nginx

I am trying to make a subdomain on Nginx. I understand that I have to make a new server block but even after doing that I am still unable to access it. This is a copy of my working config file without the subdomain. http://pastebin.com/Ah9gri1u

I am hoping to put everything in that one file. I created a new directory in /var/www/stage. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Edit /etc/nginx/sites-available/default and add the following:

server {
  listen 80;
  
  server_name www.example.com;
  root /var/www/example;
  index index.html index.htm index.php;              
  
  location / {
    try_files $uri $uri/ =404;
  }
}

server {
  listen 80;
  
  server_name blog.example.com;
  root /var/www/blog;
  index index.html index.htm index.php;              
  
  location / {
    try_files $uri $uri/ =404;
  }
}

Hope this helps! :-)
