Problem with virtual host settings

So I have a info.php page which is located on the folder
/var/www/nginx-default, however when I go to my ip address/info.php, it
always redirects me to this site:http://www.iana.org/domains/example/is
this because I have a virtual host that I called example? Here is my
config for the example website:
server {
listen 80;
server_name www.example.com;
rewrite ^/(.*) http://example.com/$1 permanent;
}

server {
listen 80;
server_name example.com;

 access_log /var/www/example.com/logs/access.log;
 error_log /var/www/example.com/logs/error.log;

 location / {
      root   /var/www/example.com/public/;
      index  index.html;
      }

}

As I don’t have a domain name yet and I can only access the server via
terminal. The way I access this site via browser is by changing my
/etc/hosts in my macbook so that example.com is mapped to my server IP
address. however now when I do xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/info.php in my macbook
browser it redirects me to that site I posted above, when I access
example.com from my macbook it works just fine.

Hello,

Short answers:

  • Add www.example.com to your /etc/hosts
    OR
  • In your second server block, change “listen 80” to “listen 80
    default;”.

Both should work.

Now, to understand why : have a look there
