So I tried with my real IP server, and it works. But when I add my IP

How do I configure the IP on the host? Why would the host need to be
aware of its IP? Moreover, Nginx is running in a virtual machine, the
only IPs it is aware of are 127.0.0.1 and 10.0.0.1
Um, those IP’s aren’t routable on the general internet, how are hosts
going to contact that machine ?
And why do I need to configure any IP, as Nginx works with the real IP
of my server, why is it not working with the IP failover? By the way
the IP failover is correctly pointing to my server.
If you want nginx to listen() on any IP address that is currently
configured for your server (/sbin/ifconfig) then you can say
However, because you need to bind a particular IP to a particular ssl
certificate, then you need to specify the IP you want each server
block assigned too in the config. Also, each of thoses IP’s have to be
valid at server startup time so that nginx can issue a successful
bind() call for each.
Can you give us some more background about your setup, and what you
are trying to do?
