I'm working through https://www.obeythetestinggoat.com/book/chapter_manual_deployment.html#_deploying_our_code_manually, trying to set up a django app on an ubuntu 16.04 VPS. I've followed the directions on setting up an nginx config file. Following the directions I have set up a basic nginx config file and put in in /etc/nginx/sites-available/tester. Now I'm trying to symlink it to /etc/nginx/sites-available/

deploy@server:/etc/nginx/sites-available$ sudo ln -s tester /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/tester

But I'm suspecting that Something is wrong because the link looks different than the default link.

Also after reloading Nginx with:

sudo systemctl reload nginx

The site did not work. I checked :

sudo nginx -T

but don't see the config file. What am I doing wrong. What do the colours mean?

    see askubuntu.com/questions/17299/… Oh and the red one is pointing to itself. – Rinzwind May 6 '17 at 15:32
  • Not an NGINX thing, so i've removed that tag. – Thomas Ward May 6 '17 at 16:17
  • @Rinzwind, would you mind explaining how with the ln -s I used above it ended up pointing to itself? – user61629 May 6 '17 at 16:23
