dificulty finding local static content

April 17, 2015 10:09PM
Total newb here so apologies in advance. (Silly me, I could have set up Apache, but I decided to learn something new.)

I have an existing website hosted on a server running apache. I am setting up a new server, this one being vitrual and bare bones, i.e. nothing installed but linux. OS is debian. Host company is ovh.com. I installed nginx from the repo rather than complile.

Default file local per the debian installation is the website is found at /usr/share/nginx/www. The html files are located in the www directory. The index.html renders fine. However, I can't follow links in the page.

I haven't changed the dns yet, but the website can be found by going to 167.114.155.30. External links work fine, as demonstrated on this page:
http://167.114.155.30/archived_playback.html

The "default" file is as follows:
------------
/etc/nginx/sites-available# cat default
# You may add here your
# server {
# ...
# }
# statements for each of your virtual hosts to this file

##
# You should look at the following URL's in order to grasp a solid understanding
# of Nginx configuration files in order to fully unleash the power of Nginx.
# http://wiki.nginx.org/Pitfalls
# http://wiki.nginx.org/QuickStart
# http://wiki.nginx.org/Configuration
#
# Generally, you will want to move this file somewhere, and start with a clean
# file but keep this around for reference. Or just disable in sites-enabled.
#
# Please see /usr/share/doc/nginx-doc/examples/ for more detailed examples.
