I followed this page to get my rails environment working, and its working good but I want a separate area for non rails development. How do I setup a virtual host so that the passenger module is bypassed and nginx opens my non ruby/rails page?

my http://x.x.x.x/tasks is working but this is a ruby web app and delivers content from /var/www/my_app

I want to hit http://x.x.x.x/sipml5 and the nginx webserver display the content from /var/www/sipml5

here's my current nginx.conf file:

[root@p3660712 conf]# vi nginx.conf
#        location / {
#            root   html;
#            index  index.html index.htm;
#        }

        root /var/www/my_app/public;
        passenger_enabled on;

        #error_page  404              /404.html;

        # redirect server error pages to the static page /50x.html
        #
        error_page   500 502 503 504  /50x.html;
        location = /50x.html {
            root   html;
        }

    server {
        listen  80;
        server_name sipml5;
        location / {
                root html;
                index index.html index.htm;
                }
        root /var/www/sipml5/;
        }

Open in new window


and here's what I get when I try to restart nginx

[root@p3660712 conf]# /etc/init.d/nginx restart
nginx: [emerg] "server" directive is not allowed here in /opt/nginx/conf/nginx.conf:64
nginx: configuration file /opt/nginx/conf/nginx.conf test failed

Is that the whole conf file? Guessing not by the error line no.
Check you have closed the squigglies off correctly, I would guess it is missing from just before your new server line since location should be in a server block.

As I said you are missing a squiggly } before your other server block

That was it, I had the server within the previous server element. Updated and restarted but its still not showing what I'm after, seems the rails framework is still trapping the output

    server {
        listen  80;
        server_name sipml5;
        location / {
                root html;
                index index.html index.htm;
                }
        root /var/www/sipml5/;
        }

When I hit http://x.x.x.x/sipml5/ i get the rails routing error page

Your first server block is a catch all.
Move your Ruby server block so it is first.
