Why did you remove the usage of the IP instead of a domain? I am aware I can create it with any domain then comment out the server_name in the nginx conf files but why did we remove the IP option? Is there anywhere to bypass the URL verification you introduced in the last version? I tried to look in the documentation and couldn't find anything about it.

Thank you so much.

It was completely unintentional, we just improved the function we use to validate the domain name. Removing the server_name is not recommended, please, read the documentation about how to set a default Nginx response.

Create a "whateverdotcom" site, and then set it as default. This is the correct way to achieve what you want!

Thank you!

Why is removing server_name is not recommended by the way? Just curious

  • It will break some Webinoly functions that expect this value.
  • Nginx has the default_server directive that works better in this case. Webinoly uses this directive to set the default response.
  • If you have multiple Nginx server blocks, server_name directive is needed to decide which server block will be used to serve each request.
