  • Hey @jammastahk,

    Could you possibly share some more info here so that we can better understand what’s going on? Your nginx config, how you’re running your application, what the application is etc.

Looks like it was a mistake on my part. I didn’t have a / in front of my index.html filename in my sites-available server block. You can consider this closed.
