Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have the following directory structure for my websites:

/var/www/sitename/subdomain/(public|log)

e.g /var/www/stackoverflow.com/careers/public/index.html

Can I make a single generic nginx configuration to do this? So that every domain is mapped to the right directory? I would not like to edit my nginx configuration for every website I add.

The root domain can always be mapped to the www subdomain.

The response you would get from the people who've used nginx the longest (in the IRC and on the mailing list) is to generate your configuration file automatically as it will work faster. –  Martin Fjordvald May 6 '10 at 10:46

It was link to my answer to another question -- it seems died along with the question. I've updated the answer with another link –  Alexander Azarov Mar 23 '11 at 8:22
