why is HTTP_HOST set to "wrong" value on 2nd nginx server ?

hi,

i have a nginx server serving a ror app (1).

now i have added a second server section , different server_name
directive in nginx.conf serving up the same app but with a different
layout based on controlle rlogic based on the HOST_NAME.

it works locally, but the server still show HOSTNAME from server 1,
hence logic failing...

any ideas?

I think you need to be a little more explicit on exactly what you mean
by HOSTNAME (or HOST_NAME, you don't seem sure which it is).

Sure: post your nginx config (or a sample version that demonstrates
the problem) along with something showing how you're determining
what requests the Rails app is receiving.

never mind.
did clear browser cache...too many windows... too much of a day...

i am trying to figure our why layout is not being triggerd in
applicaiton controller....

thx
again

somewhat off the topic - but just want to repeat my delight that HatchBox now handle all this server pain for me!

it’s kinda like heroku - but they’ll configure the server on your choice of host. I use DigitalOcean

I give them a fairly modest amount of money, and they make all this kind of thing very easy.

Adding an extra domain to the app is about three clicks. (app, configuration, type your new domain name, click add) They worry about the ngnix config and all that

I actually have an app like yours which behaves differently according to host. I just have this method in my application controller

def get_host

	host = params[:host] || request.host

	@host = HostInfo.with(host:host)

end

I use the params[:host] option to simplify local testing. It allows me to test localhost:3000/?host=domain.com
