I own a domain, let's say, and I point an A record to my server with IP, running nginx. When I open in a browser, I get to the correct site, but all links point to the IP instead of the domain.

What am I doing wrong? Is this a web server issue?

you are so right! Thanks! I somehow thought this was a masking or redirecting thing... but it was just Wordpress setting links wrong. – tvooo Mar 8 '12 at 9:53
@AD7six - maybe post that as an answer so sweenytimm can accept it – Mark Henderson Mar 8 '12 at 9:58
righteho @MarkHenderson, thanks for the impetus – AD7six Mar 8 '12 at 10:03

nginx isn't (directly) responsible for how links are rendered in your html pages.

why not just use /foo instead of http://<some variable>/foo in your php files?
