    Has there been a version change in nginx? My nginx.conf file does not look like yours and when I do step 13, I receive a ‘”location” directive is not allowed here in /etc/nginx/nginx.conf:35; configuration file /etc/nginx/nginx.conf test failed’ error.

    This is the best guide on the net; any help or updates would be hugely appreciated!

    • Matei Cezar says:

      Post your entire nginx.conf configuration here to see where the problem resides.

        Following is the default nginx.conf file without any edits:

        user www-data;
        worker_processes auto;
        pid /run/;

        events {
        worker_connections 768;
        # multi_accept on;

        http {

        # Basic Settings

        sendfile on;
        tcp_nopush on;
        tcp_nodelay on;

        types_hash_max_size 2048;
        # server_tokens off;

        # server_names_hash_bucket_size 64;
        # server_name_in_redirect off;

        include /etc/nginx/mime.types;
        default_type application/octet-stream;

        # SSL Settings

        ssl_protocols TLSv1 TLSv1.1 TLSv1.2; # Dropping SSLv3, ref: POODLE
        ssl_prefer_server_ciphers on;

        access_log /var/log/nginx/access.log;
        error_log /var/log/nginx/error.log;

        # Gzip Settings
        gzip on;
        gzip_disable “msie6”;

        # gzip_vary on;

        # Virtual Host Configs

        include /etc/nginx/conf.d/*.conf;
        include /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/*;

        #mail {
        # # See sample authentication script at:
        # #
        # # auth_http localhost/auth.php;
        # # pop3_capabilities “TOP” “USER”;
        # # imap_capabilities “IMAP4rev1” “UIDPLUS”;
        # server {
        # listen localhost:110;
        # protocol pop3;
        # proxy on;
        # }
        # server {
        # listen localhost:143;
        # protocol imap;
        # proxy on;
        # }

          The issue is very simple, if you look closely to your nginx configuration file you will see that it ships with separate virtual hosts configuration files. I suggest you add the proxy block in the specific configuration file from sites-enabled directory.

    firewall-cmd –ad-port=8080/tcp –permanent
    # firewall-cmd –ad-port=8443/tcp –permanent
    # firewall-cmd –ad-port=7070/tcp –permanent
    # firewall-cmd –reload

    should be –add-port and –permanent
