"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Put your sites under /var/www/, example:


Create virtual host files for each website under /etc/nginx/sites-available/

For example: /etc/nginx/sites-available/

In each file you set a config similar to this:

 server {
        listen   80; 
        #listen   [::]:80 default ipv6only=on; 

        root /var/www/;
        index index.html index.htm;


Open in new window

Repeat for all websites but replace the website name and folder name naturally...

Now for each virtual host you create make a link to sites-enabled:

sudo ln -s /etc/nginx/sites-available/ /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/
sudo ln -s /etc/nginx/sites-available/ /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/
sudo ln -s /etc/nginx/sites-available/ /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/

Restart nginx.

Are the port numbers going to be same for all the websites...

What if I want to have each website a specific port?

You can keep them the same or use different ports, your choice.
