Updating host on Nginx (reverse proxy with Apache)

October 21, 2016 274 views
Nginx Apache Configuration Management Ubuntu

I have set up a droplet on D/O and am using serverpilot to configure apps on the droplet to manage multiple domains. I am struggling to update the path/root for individual domains.

I have tried updating the /etc/nginx-sp/vhosts.d/domain.d/main.custom.conf and also /etc/apache-sp/domain.d/main.custom.conf but if i update the nginx settings i get duplication errors and the apache-sp still points to the original path set up by serverpilot.

Any thoughts? Struggling here and site launch beckons …

Without seeing the exact setup (and bearing in mind I'm no expert) - do you need multiple location (or server) blocks in nginx to point the different domains at different paths, ssl certs etc?
Just thinking out loud here in the hope it triggers a spark in your mind :-)

i.e. see - https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-nginx-server-blocks-virtual-hosts-on-ubuntu-14-04-lts - this don't take into account any ServerPilot specific config though

Nginx is an incredibly powerful web server and reverse proxy. In this guide, we'll discuss how to set up server blocks on Ubuntu 14.04 in order to server multiple domains from a single server.
  • Hey Jay - thanks for replies.

    So it seems SP disabled virtual host set-up, opting for symlinks instead to route requests to an alternative document root.

    However struggling to get this to work with either absolute or relative symlinks.

    • Seems SP has disabled symlinking above the app root or between apps. can symlink within same directory but not above it
