This video continues the discussion of creating a basic server configuration by adding directives for default server, server name, and index files.
- [Instructor] Let's take a look at the…simple server configuration that we already have in place.…So far, we've configured the port…this server will be listening on,…and the root directory where the files…for our site will be stored.…Now let's edit the file and add a few more directives.…First, let's add the "default_server" directive…to the "listen" statement.…
Because nginx can serve multiple files…from the same IP address, we can use the "default_server"…statement to tell nginx to use this server configuration…if no other configurations match the name…of the site being requested.…Which leads to the next item we need to add,…the name of the server, which is also the name of the site.…If you're familiar with Apache vhost configurations,…this is similar to setting up a name-based vhost.…
By including the server name "wisdompetmed.local"…and "www.wisdompetmed.local", we let nginx know…which sites the server configuration applies to.…Otherwise, if we were serving multiple sites…from the same IP address,…nginx might serve the wrong content.…
