LEMP Applications Ubuntu 18.04

Hi, I am using a LEMP stack droplet. My domain example.com is a WordPress site and app.example.com is a Laravel application. What is the best way of doing this?
I am planning to install SSL and CircleCI (CI CD) with both of the sites.

Thanks

Great question. What you’re going to use for this is called Server Blocks. With this you will be able to re-route traffic to various locations on the server, based on the URL that is calling for them. Though this tutorial was for Ubuntu 16, I’m quite positive that nothing has changed in 18 relative to this:
