Question

Subdomian configuration not working (ubuntu + nginx)

Hi, I know I am doing something wrong. But I simply cannot figure it out. Here’s my DNS zone file:

$ORIGIN goalchieve.com. $TTL 1800 goalchieve.com. IN SOA ns1.digitalocean.com. hostmaster.goalchieve.com. 1433621271 10800 3600 604800 1800 goalchieve.com. 1800 IN NS ns1.digitalocean.com. goalchieve.com. 1800 IN NS ns2.digitalocean.com. goalchieve.com. 1800 IN NS ns3.digitalocean.com. goalchieve.com. 1800 IN A 46.101.0.109 www.goalchieve.com. 1800 IN CNAME goalchieve.com. *.goalchieve.com. 1800 IN CNAME goalchieve.com.

when I run root@Goalchieve:/etc/nginx# ping rc.goalchieve.com ping: unknown host rc.goalchieve.com

Could you help me ?

When I try to restart nginx :

* Restarting nginx nginx                                                                                                                               nginx: [warn] conflicting server name "rc.goalchieve.com" on 0.0.0.0:80, ignored
nginx: [warn] conflicting server name "rc.goalchieve.com" on [::]:80, ignored
nginx: [warn] conflicting server name "rc.goalchieve.com" on 0.0.0.0:80, ignored
nginx: [warn] conflicting server name "rc.goalchieve.com" on [::]:80, ignored

@radoslawnoga I made a little mistake

Link the file to sites-enabled:

 sudo ln -s  /etc/nginx/sites-available/rc.goalchieve.com /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/

@radoslawnoga

Create a new directory mkdir /var/www/html/rc.goalchieve.com

Create a new configuration :

touch /etc/nginx/sites-available/rc.goalchieve.com
nano /etc/nginx/sites-available/rc.goalchieve.com

Paste this (right click)

# Default server configuration

server {
    listen 80;
    listen [::]:80;

	root /var/www/html/rc.goalchieve.com;

    # Add index.php to the list if you are using PHP
    index index.html index.htm;

    server_name rc.goalchieve.com;

    location / {
        # First attempt to serve request as file, then
        # as directory, then fall back to displaying a 404.
        try_files $uri $uri/ =404;
        autoindex on;
    }

    # deny access to .htaccess files, if Apache's document root
    # concurs with nginx's one
    #
    #location ~ /\.ht {
    #   deny all;
    #}
}

# Virtual Host configuration for example.com
#
# You can move that to a different file under sites-available/ and symlink that
# to sites-enabled/ to enable it.
#
#server {
#   listen 80;
#   listen [::]:80;
#
#   server_name example.com;

#   index index.html;
#
#   location / {
#       try_files $uri $uri/ =404;
#   }
#}

Save it (CTRL X)

Link the file to sites-enabled

sudo ln -s /etc/nginx/sites-available/rc.goalchieve.com /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/rc.goalchieve.com

Grant Permission sudo chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www/html//var/www/html/rc.goalchieve.com

Reboot server service nginx restart

PS: Sorry for the short tutorial i wrote this on a mobile phone, no way for details. If you want them just ask :-) PPS: If you need PHP just ask and i explain how to install it for nginx

Thanks! Could you write how should set the configuration ? I will be grateful

Remove *.goalchieve.com. and add rc.goalchieve.com. in A for 46.101.0.109 Did you add a new configuration file for your Subdomain? If not, just ask and I write a how to for you
