Url is still showing the NGINX default page instead of the application page (UBUNTU+NGINX+FLASK)

As i was following through the tutorial
(How To Serve Flask Applications with Gunicorn and Nginx on Ubuntu 20.04).
Everything is setup. I do not have a domain. I point to the ip URL
so in the file this is my entry

server {
listen 80;

location / {
    include proxy_params;
    proxy_pass http://unix:/home/ubuntu/apps/visionapp/visionapp.sock;


now when i browse
it still points to Welcome to nginx! instead of Hello world

Hi there,

I believe that you should not specify the http:// part for the server name. It should only be:


Also if you have a default Nginx server block, I would recommend removing it and only leaving the new one that you’ve added. You can remove the default one from the /etc/nginx/sites-enabled directory using the unlink command.

Also, keep in mind that you would need to restart Nginx after the configuration changes.
