Confused about Putty colors – Centos 7

Posted on

Problem :

So I am using nginx as my server if that helps at all. I also use Putty as my connection manager as well.

So while setting up domains here and there under nginx, there seems to be a difference in colors for some of the domains. I am really unsure why. Like if it is a concern at all.

enter image description here

I just setup a domain and it appears red as shown:

I’ve hidden domain names for privacy reasons. The tutorial I used to setup nginx on my server is:

Information such as serverblock info is not what I use on there if that was a question of the viewers.

You may also see in my image two domains don’t have a directory on the right side. I believe during the setup of those 2, I did not create a symbolic link between them. But no performance/uptime issues with them.


I have also read this that my friend linked me, but they don’t seem to correlate with what I am facing:


Ok so I solved my problem in a way. More of getting it to be blue. It looks like there was a small typo in the symbolic link, so it was read because it must of been invalid. Typed it all out again and it appears blue. Staff can close.

Solution :

The red link is link to non-existing file and means that it is invalid. It is because of missing slash / in the beginning.

For more, the other colors are dependent on different access permissions, as you have already found out.
