Dificulty finding local static content

Total newb here so apologies in advance. (Silly me, I could have set up
Apache, but I decided to learn something new.)

I have an existing website hosted on a server running apache. I am
setting
up a new server, this one being vitrual and bare bones, i.e. nothing
installed but linux. OS is debian. Host company is ovh.com. I
installed
nginx from the repo rather than complile.

Default file local per the debian installation is the website is found
at
/usr/share/nginx/www. The html files are located in the www directory.
The
index.html renders fine. However, I can’t follow links in the page.

I haven’t changed the dns yet, but the website can be found by going to
167.114.155.30. External links work fine, as demonstrated on this page:
http://167.114.155.30/archived_playback.html

The “default” file is as follows:

/etc/nginx/sites-available# cat default

You may add here your

server {

}

statements for each of your virtual hosts to this file

You should look at the following URL’s in order to grasp a solid

understanding

of Nginx configuration files in order to fully unleash the power of

Nginx.

http://wiki.nginx.org/Pitfalls

http://wiki.nginx.org/QuickStart

http://wiki.nginx.org/Configuration

Generally, you will want to move this file somewhere, and start with a

clean

file but keep this around for reference. Or just disable in

sites-enabled.

Please see /usr/share/doc/nginx-doc/examples/ for more detailed

examples.

server {
listen 80; ## listen for ipv4; this line is default and
implied

    server_name localhost;

    location / {
            # First attempt to serve request as file, then
            # as directory, then fall back to displaying a 404.
            try_files $uri $uri/ $uri.html =404;
            # Uncomment to enable naxsi on this location

     location = /50x.html {
            root /usr/share/nginx/www;
     }

# # With php5-fpm:
# fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php5-fpm.sock;
# fastcgi_index index.php;
# include fastcgi_params;
#}

    # deny access to .htaccess files, if Apache's document root
    # concurs with nginx's one
    #
    #location ~ /\.ht {
    #       deny all;

What links on the page can’t you follow?

Pick any one.

What request do you make / what response do you get / what response do
you want?

I went to the “/” url and followed the nellis.html link with no obvious
problems.

Argh! Pilot error! Once I cleared the browser cache, the website works.
Sorry to waste your time.

Next time I post, I’ll try to have a real problem.

Good that you found the working system.

And thanks for following up, so that the list knows there is no ongoing
problem.

Cheers,
