    I can’t seem to find a tutorial that works.

    I’m trying to redirect an old domain and anything typed after / to redirect to a new domain.

    For example ( => equals redirect ):

    domain.net => domain.me
    domain.net/something => domain.me/something

    Try

    
    location / {
        rewrite ^(.*)$ http://www.domain.me/$1 redirect;
    }

    Nginx config file domain.net.conf in /etc/nginx/sites-available, don’t forget to system link it to sites-enabled folder and reboot Nginx.

    
    server {
    
            listen 80;
            server_name domain.net;
            root /folder/on/the/server/www;
    
            location / {
                rewrite ^(.*)$ http://www.domain.me/$1 redirect;
            }
    
            location ~ /\.ht {
                deny all;
            }
    }

    Each of the domains that your server is responding to should have its own config file. So if you are responding to domain.net and domain.me each needs seperate config files. You would place these in the sites-available folder. Then you would system link them, similar to what a2ensite does for Apache, to the sites-enabled.

    sudo ln -s /etc/nginx/sites-available/domain.me.conf /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/domain.me.conf

    sudo service nginx reload

    The names are not really important. That’s more for our conviniance. Server name and document root we really care about. Nginx just loads the config files. You can have eveyrthing in one file if you wanted to.

    So I would leave the default as is. If that’s your main website, then just copy that config file, name it old.site.config if you want, then just add the code above, responding to appropriate domain. It’s really up to you how you want to structure it.

    EDIT: Linked to wrong video, this one is using wildcard subdomains. I’ll leave it here if someone find it useful. Let me go find the correct one.

    Watch this and you’ll see the process: https://serversforhackers.com/editions/2014/03/25/nginx/
