Nginx-Mongrel almost working; just need a little help

your config looks copy right off from http://brainspl.at/nginx.conf.txt
, seems fine.

try "server_name joehost.com www.joehost.com"

there's also a nginx config generator
"gem install nginx_config_generator"

below is mine,
        upstream groups {
               ip_hash;
               server localhost:3000;
               server localhost:3001;
        }
        server {
                listen 80;
                server_name groups.wuyasea.com;

                access_log /u/apps/groups/current/log/access_log
main;
                error_log /u/apps/groups/current/log/error_log
info;

                root /u/apps/groups/current/public;

                location / {
                  # needed to forward user's IP address to rails
                  proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;

                  # needed for HTTPS
                  proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For
$proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
                  proxy_set_header Host $http_host;
                  proxy_redirect false;
                  proxy_max_temp_file_size 0;

                  if (!-f $request_filename) {
                    proxy_pass http://groups;
                    break;
                  }
                }
        }
