Nginx Config and Gancio Display

I am new to setting up instances of federated servers. I am trying to set up gancio, but seem to be going wrong somewhere in the servers config. It remains showing the Nginx setup page at my IP address ( and nothing at our website ( If anyone is available to help it would be much appreciated! When I’m done, I plan to submit some proposals for the documentation in order to make it more friendly to new users.

Gancio Config:

Nginx Config
followed steps here: Need helped with nginx proxy setup (#103) · Issues · les / gancio · GitLab
where a user advised to
“/etc/nginx/sites-available and adopt the server-name then `ln -s /etc/nginx/sites-available/ /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/”
although I didn’t do the second step about commenting the line, as it seems the Nginx instructions were updated today by Gancio and that part is no longer there.

server {
listen 80;
listen [::]:80;

keepalive_timeout 70;
sendfile on;
client_max_body_size 80m;

location / {
try_files $uri @proxy;

location @proxy {
proxy_set_header Host $host;

Thank you to anyone who takes time to help! I am new to all this, but I want to become skilled enough at this to help others set up fediverse instances eventually.

In the end I restarted the server, cleared the cache and now it is working…although I have come across another issue, I think it is more specific to Gancio.
