SWAG, SpaceInvaderOne, website server


Recommended Posts

Hi every one,


I've got great time with my unraid server since 6 months.

I've followed SpaceInvaderOne in configuration: SWAG, Jitsi, Radarr, Sonarr,.....


Now, I'd love to host my websites (multi domains) on my unraid server.


I started with that : https://technicalramblings.com/blog/how-to-set-up-a-wordpress-site-with-letsencrypt-and-mariadb-on-unraid/


What I want: Wordpress.MyDomainName.com pointing on a wordpress site.


What I get now: Wordpress.MydomainName.com pointing on the default swag webpage.

       If I'm doing Wordpress.MyDomainName.com/wordpress, I've got my wordpress site.


What I did:

- Add Wordpress.MyDomainName.com in Subdomain(s) Swag Docker

- Copy/rename the "default" files in /appdata/swag/nginx/site-conf/. I've got now wordpress.mydomainname.com.conf (the copy of "default").


I've made some few editions, and start again my swag docker.


The error is:

nginx: [emerg] the same path name "/var/lib/nginx/cache" used in /config/nginx/site-confs/default:153 and in /config/nginx/site-confs/wordpress.mydomainname.com.conf:153


I'm a little bit confused....

What am I doing wrong ?


Here is my wordpress.mydomainname.com.conf:

I'm not a nginx guru and I hope you found a solution since november.

I'm trying to host some websites within Unraid. At the moment my websites are hosted on dedicated servers.


For your problem I think you should look at the location settings eventhough yours looks fine


To illustrate. I have a setup where one of my site is located in /var/www/boombast/


Heres my location settings:

location ^~ / {
    root /var/www/boombast;
    try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?q=$uri&$args;
    include /etc/nginx/conf.d/php.conf;
    include /etc/nginx/conf.d/cache.conf;


Note that I have copied the content of the wordpress folder within the boombast one.


Hope it helps.
