How to... - nginx config to serve static files

Dear all,

I currently have setupped my nginx to be able to serve static files. The
snippets is as such:

Code:

server {
listen 80;
server_name 72.14.185.215;

    location / {
            root   /var/www/nginx-default;
            index  index.html index.htm;
    }

    location /media {
            root /var/www/media;

autoindex on;

allow all;

    }

}

Now when I access from the browser using this address
http://72.14.185.215/media , I get a 404 message. I already created the
/var/www/media folder. Have I missed on something here?

Thanks in advance
