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

For the first time today, I am trying to run Nginx. I have to run 2 websites built in Symfony 1.4 and Symfony 2.1. The nginx configuration file is http://pastebin.com/rFBqBaaM. The server blocks are http://pastebin.com/KZjfdYrY for site1 and http://pastebin.com/fpscrLx2 for site2.

I do not have a domain for site2 yet so I am using an Alias to access this. However, whenever I try to visit either site1 or site2, I see site1 on both the URLs.

look for the default.conf file in /etc/nginx/conf.d directory or where you have your virtual hosts file reside.

if it's not there make a one and put the default options like document root and server_name. etc etc..

Thanks for your suggestion. I have managed to make it work, though it still follows the same procedure, I simply modified my virtualhost config files. I am not sure but maybe it was some Symfony specific regular expression or location directive for PHP that was causing the problem. Thanks for your help though. I have listed all the steps taken in a blog post at goo.gl/VZCoq –  gentrobot Dec 3 '12 at 5:15
