installation – Magento2 doesn’t load in Browser after fresh install and successful nginx config test

I successfully deployed the latest Magento 2.4.1 on Ubuntu 18.04, PHP, Nginx with letsencrypt cert.

Previously, when i visit my domain i was able to see the magento 2 welcome page. After having made the Command line installation successfully and got the unique link to admin panel, visiting magento through the browser is returning a server not found error.

When i send a GET request to local host (NOT https) from server side, it returns the following Nginx welcome page.

curl -XGET http://localhost

<!DOCTYPE html>
<title>Welcome to nginx!</title>
    body {
        width: 35em;
        margin: 0 auto;
        font-family: Tahoma, Verdana, Arial, sans-serif;

<p>If you see this page, the nginx web server is successfully installed and
working. Further configuration is required.</p>

I am able to successfully ping my connected domain over the internet which returns the actual server IPv4 address

root@pc:~# ping
PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from ( icmp_seq=1 ttl=53 time=161 ms
64 bytes from ( icmp_seq=2 ttl=53 time=82.6 ms
64 bytes from ( icmp_seq=3 ttl=53 time=105 ms

If i ping my domain with “www.” before it retuns the below

root@pc:~# ping **www**
ping: Name or service not known

Possible issues:

I have magento installed in var/www/ instead of var/www/html but i made the necessary changes in default.conf as well as nginx.conf and the sample configuration file in the magento2 filesystem configuration (nginx.conf.sample)

The solution may be something very simple that i missed, does anyone have an idea?

bitcoin core – To what extent is the actual downloading of blockchain data what slows down a “fresh sync”?

I’ve just sat an old computer with fresh Linux Mint and Bitcoin Core installed to sync from scratch. Since its HDD is 250 GB, I had to enable “pruned mode” since the blockchain is currently 367.2 GB.

Having not synced from scratch since 2013, it feels like this will take an eternity.

Why exactly is it so slow? If I were to download 367.2 GB, yeah, it would take some time, but over Bit Torrent, with tons of seeders (as would be the case for something this popular), it would probably max out my hardware, meaning 10 MB/s (100 Mb/s), and then those many GBs don’t seem so large anymore.

But I also realize that it’s not just about downloading the data, but about verifying it. This, as I understand it, takes a lot of CPU and I/O power (possibly also RAM). Is this what primarily is slowing down a fresh sync, or is the actual “data distribution” part just sub-optimally optimized?

I realize that the answer, whatever it will be, will not help me download it faster, but still, I have to satisfy my curiosity. The progress indicator says “1%” currently.

I vaguely recall people talking about separately downloading the blockchain and then “feeding” it to Bitcoin Core, but that seems like more work than it’ll probably be worth with all the presumed hassle it would entail… And it just goes back to my question: why is the downloading of the data not super fast? Or maybe it is? I frankly have no clue what goes on inside my network cables.

Fresh Out of the Gate: Central Servers Debuts with $3.99/mo VPS in Kansas City, USA!

Central Servers is a new hosting company and James recently contacted us to get their first offer posted on LEB.

And when I saw new, I mean brand new.  But they’ve ticked off all the essentials: they’re registered in Florida (as SunBiz, L18000272503 FEI/EIN Number83-265590), running a proper datacenter (UnrealServers in Kansas City, USA), and have a special offer for LEB readers!  OK, I suppose that last one isn’t completely essential for business success but I highly recommend it to all providers.

Their VPS line ranges from 2GB up to 10GB but you can get started with 1GB for $3.99/mo!

They accept Paypal and Coinbase Commerce (which is BTC, LTC, ETH, USDT, XLM, etc.)  Be sure to review their terms of service.

I view our role here at LowEndBox as (to paraphrase the ABC Sports announcer) “spanning to globe to bring you constant variety in hosting!”  Part of that is featuring new and upcoming hosts.  Central Servers is unproven here so if you decide you want to give them a spin, please make sure to share your experience in the comments below!

networking – Fresh install of Windows 7 has slow download/upload speed

So hi. I just installed a fresh install of Windows 7 and the internet is running very slow, at around .5 MBPS and on Windows 10 it usually ran at 60-90 MBPS. I configured a lot of settings in CMD, I installed all the drivers I need, and my internet is the same speed.

Here are my stats: Intel I211 Gigabit Network Connection Driver (for wireless, doesn’t even work), Intel Ethernet Connection (7) I219-V Driver, and a standard Ethernet wire cable directly plugged into the router.

If I could get help, I would be thankful!
