What is your droplet’s host name set to? If not, you will have to configure nginx to serve Redmine on

Edit /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/redmine, and add to the server_name directive:


server_name droplet-hostname;


server_name droplet-hostname;

Then, restart nginx:

sudo service nginx restart

  • It looks like Redmine is loading on now. Are you still experiencing this issue? You might have to clear your browser’s cache.

Seems to work now. Do you know if I should leave the other domains in the server_name setting or doesn’t it really matter.
