I just registered a domain on namecheap, and want to self-host through ddns. I have my host setting setup as:
@ 127.0.0.1 A (address) www http://domain.com HTTP Redirect
So clearly I'm trying to make it so that a www.domain.com redirects to domain.com, and the dynamic dns updates the latter. So my ddclient.conf file is:
## update time in 300 seconds daemon=300 ## you can open this file with any text editor to see what is being sent cache=/tmp/ddclient.cache pid=/var/run/ddclient.pid ## This line will get your public IP address if you're system is not directly connected ## to the internet, such as behind a firewall/router use=web, web=http://whatismyipaddress.com/, web-skip='Your IP address is' protocol=namecheap server=dynamicdns.park-your-domain.com ## Your Domain name login=foo.com password=bar @
Which I took off a tutorial online. When I try to connect to the site, a www.domain.com request redirects as intended, but the redirect or a direct domain.com request give a 400 Bad Request error. There's nothing in the nginx log, and this is my first rodeo with hosting my own server, so I don't really know where to start debugging this.
