Weird problem

I'm setting up a new server, consolidating some smaller ones into the new
one. I've installed nginx 0.7.38 and I'm using BIND as a nameserver. I have
checked my files and they all look fine.


I'm moving domains a few at a time. As I move them I change the IP's of the
child nameservers to point to IP's on the new server. This results in fairly
quick propagation and within a short period if I flush my cache at my home
PC I am directed to the new server.


I am using the same nginx.conf as I use elsewhere, except for the server
name and number of child processes. I use the same site config files. I am
using the same paths. generally /home/jim/domain.tld/html for a document
root, and I am using the same version and configuration of php and php-fpm
with the same user and group. The only difference in my nginx binary is that
I have added support for h.264 streaming but I have removed that with the
same results so I doubt that can be an issue.


The problem is that each time I add a domain for anywhere from 6-24 hours
nginx serves pages from a different domain on the new machine. Or sometimes
it defaults to serving from /usr/local/nginx/html. I've confirmed the paths
that it is calling "document root" and that the IP's are from the new
server. After this amount of time nginx starts serving documents from the
correct directory/doc root.


Any ideas?
