Changed /usr/share/nginx/html/ softlink, now nginx won't serve it @localhost

Nginx 1.2.4 on Ubuntu 12.04 x64 desktop

I have a pure html site located at:

~/Projects/Clients/ANS/src/MetroBusiness.ans

That is softlinked to nginx’s localhost directory:

/usr/share/nginx/html/dev/MetroBusiness.ans

And I used to view the site at http://localhost/dev/MetroBusiness.ans.

But I recently moved the site source to ~/work:

~/work/clients/ans/src/MetroBusiness.ans

And re-linked it in nginx’s localhost directory:

/usr/share/nginx/html/dev/MetroBusiness.ans

But now I can’t view the site in localhost. It should be the same url,
but
now I’m getting:


Welcome to nginx! If you see this page, the nginx web server is
successfully
installed and working.

However, the other soft-linked sites that I didn’t change still work
fine,
just the one I changed and re-linked.

Also, it doesn’t show up in the nginx directory listing at
http://localhost/dev/ (with other sites linked in the same way, but not
recently moved)

Permissions are set to rwxrwxr_x on the site source directory. I
restarted
nginx, even restarted the computer, but no luck.

I’m sure there’s something minor I’m missing, but drawing a blank now.

Any idea why Nginx can’t see this soft link and serve this site anymore?

Hi there,

~/work/clients/ans/src/MetroBusiness.ans

The capitalisation there has changed.

Can you see “ls -l” and “ls -lL” of the symlink to confirm that things
on the filesystem are as they should be?

But now I can’t view the site in localhost. It should be the same url, but
now I’m getting:

What does nginx.conf have, for this server{} and this location{}?

If the above doesn’t give you a hint, perhaps the error or debug log
will?

Good luck with it,
