Introduction


In this tutorial we are going to see  how to configure virtualhost in Nginx on Ubuntu-16.04 server. For the demo purpose I have taken AWS-EC2 instance. I have successfully installed LEMP server.

After you have installed LEMP follow the below step to configure.

Note:- Please make sure that you replace the domain name with your own like my :- test.techs2resolve.in. Also create A record in Domain DNS which points to your servers Public IP.

For testing purpose you can add host entry in your local systems host file  /etc/hosts like below:- 
192.168.1.10     test.techs2resolve.in

sudo cp -av /etc/nginx/sites-available/default /etc/nginx/sites-available/test.techs2resolve.in

sudo vim /etc/nginx/sites-available/test.techs2resolve.in

The file will look like below :-
