NGINX using server_name twice for all requests, resuling in 404
August 22, 2020 02:23PM
Hello all,


Completely new to both web servers and nginx in particular.
I've been trying to host my static web page that I've built with hugo. I've tested it locally using hugo server and all the contents are loading properly.

When I upload my site to /var/www/mysite/ and try to serve it with nginx, only the initial index.html within my site dir is loaded. Each other request is 404_not found.
Reason being is each other resource besides the main index.html is being referred to by nginx as /server_name/server_name/...

Example I have an 'About' tab, that should be served from http://anna.home/about however nginx is redirecting to http://anna.home/anna.home/about which doesn't exist hence the 404.

I'm pretty sure it's a simple fix for somebody who's touched nginx before but I've been pulling my hair due to this one for a good few hours..

Any help will be much appreciated. Do let me know if I've not provided important/crucial info.



Thanks,

[SOLVED] NGINX using server_name twice for all requests, resuling in 404
August 22, 2020 05:35PM
EDIT: This has now been resolved.

This wasn't exactly an NGINX issue but rather an issue with my index.html.

All the <a> tags were referencing href="anna.home/path_to.." and as I also had the root directive set as /var/www/anna.home, the URLs were basically turning out as http://anna.home/anna.home/path_to..

Regenerating the hugo site with baseURL variable set to "" within my config.toml all my contents are now discoverable and the webpage loads properly.

I did try to change my root directive within nginx.conf to /var/www and set the location directive below it to anna.home/ however I kept getting 403 eventho all my directories had 0755 and all my files had 0644.

Thanks,
me
