Create a virtual-host (server block)

hello

I try to put a virtual host (server block) on my website, i have some
issue.

I have read the nginx tutorial for creat server block but after a lot of
time i can’t get my server block and i dont understand why.
Do you have something to configure on /etc/hosts or resolv.conf ?

this is my server block for my website.

/vhosts-anable/test.conf
*server {
listen 80;
server_name sd-32587.dedibox.fr;# localhost;

   # == Document ROOT
   root /home/sites_web/www.test.com/public;

   rails_env development;
   passenger_enabled on;

} *

And this is my conf for the virtual-host.
/vhosts-anable/pipou.conf
*server {

        listen 80 ;
        server_name websvn.sd-32587.dedibox.fr; #websvn.localhost

*.localhost;

rewrite ^/(.*) http://localhost/$1 permanent;

server_name_in_redirect off;

rewrite ^ http://websvn.sd-32587.dedibox.fr$1 permanent;

        root /home/sites_web/websvn;
        index index.html;
        error_log  /home/logs/websvn/error.log;
        access_log /home/logs/websvn/access.log;

}*

What do you do; what do you see; what do you expect to see?

Be specific.

http://nginx.org/en/docs/http/request_processing.html

When your client makes a http request of nginx, nginx must decide which
of your server{} blocks to use to process the request.

For your config, it looks like nginx does this purely based on the http
Host: header.

*server {
listen 80;
server_name sd-32587.dedibox.fr;# localhost;

If you do

curl -H Host:sd-32587.dedibox.fr -i http://your-server-name-or-ip/

you should get content from here.

If sd-32587.dedibox.fr resolves to your server ip, then that is the same
as

curl -i http://sd-32587.dedibox.fr/

and the same as using any browser to fetch it.

*server {
listen 80 ;
server_name websvn.sd-32587.dedibox.fr; #websvn.localhost

Same thing here:

curl -H Host:websvn.sd-32587.dedibox.fr -i
http://your-server-name-or-ip/

or

curl -i http://websvn.sd-32587.dedibox.fr/

when i m going to websvn.sd-32587.dedibox.fr i have an error .

What error? I suggest using “curl” for testing, as above. It tends not
to hide the real error from you.

My guess is “unable to resolve the hostname”.

Could you help me please

If the problem is that your client can’t resolve the hostname, you must
make your client be able to resolve the hostname.

Either put it in dns (so everyone who uses that dns service can see it);
or put it in the local “hosts” file that your browser uses (so that only
you can easily see it).

Good luck,
