Despite what it shows on that page, it is usually best...

....if the last argument to error_page starts with "/" or "@".

So make it "/errors/404.html" and you should see something more
useful. (Or just remove the line entirely, for a slightly different

You ask for http://a.domain.com/; nginx presumably doesn't see the file
/data/www/a.domain.com/index.php and so generates a http 404 error; your
error_page setting says "do an external redirect to errors/404.html",
which is returned to your browser.

It then asks for http://a.domain.com/errors/404.html; nginx doesn't see
the file /data/www/a.domain.com/errors/404.html and generates a http
404 error which becomes an external redirect, so your browser asks for
http://a.domain.com/errors/errors/404.html; and this continues until
your browser decides it has seen too many redirects.

So: delete or change the error_page line to prevent the loop; and add
content to the right directory to avoid the initial 404 error.

Good luck with it,
