[Create nginx server block] #nginx #server #linux #ubuntu

Here’s what it does, in a nutshell:

  • Creates a new directory for the site (/var/www/DOMAIN.COM/public_html)
  • Creates a new directory for log files (/var/www/DOMAIN.COM/logs)
  • Sets correct owner/group.
  • Creates a simple index.html file to show the site is working.
  • Asks for restart.

To use the script type:

./nginx_vhost.sh  newdomain.com

The script should work on Debian, Ubuntu and closely related distributions.

#!/usr/bin/env bash
#
# Nginx - new server block
# http://rosehosting.com
