Question how to config NGINX for multiple domains with wordpress on Debian?

Ok, so I have VPS installed with Debian, NGINX, mysql, php and wordpress. By default the template gives 1 wordpress install in the /var/www/ directory.
However, now I want to add more domains with wordpress to that VPS.

I created a directory called /home/public_html/ and linked it to the /var/www/ directory.
then I created another directory called /home/public_html/ and uploaded wordpress there.

What I did next was edit my /etc/nginx/nginx.conf file with the following code:

user www-data www-data;
worker_processes  4;

events {
    worker_connections  1024;

http {
    include       mime.types;
    default_type  application/octet-stream;

    sendfile        on;
    tcp_nopush      on;
    tcp_nodelay     off;
    keepalive_timeout  5;

    gzip  on;
    gzip_comp_level 2;
    gzip_proxied any;
    gzip_types      text/plain text/css application/x-javascript text/xml application/xml application/xml+rss text/javascript;

server  {
            listen       80;
            server_name  localhost;

            location /  {
                    root   html;
                    index  index.php index.html index.htm;

            # redirect server error pages to the static page /50x.html
            error_page   500 502 503 504  /50x.html;
            location = /50x.html
                                root   html;

server {
            listen   80;
            rewrite ^/(.*)$1 permanent;

server { listen 80; server_name; rewrite ^/(.*)$1 permanent; }
server {
            listen   80;
            server_name * *;

            location /  {
                        root   /home/public_html/$host/;
                        index  index.php index.html;
                        include /etc/nginx/wordpress_params.regular;

            # pass the PHP scripts to FastCGI server listening on
            location ~ \.php$
            fastcgi_index index.php;
            include /etc/nginx/fastcgi.conf;
fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME /home/public_html/$host/$fastcgi_script_name;

there are rewrite rules there because I want to always display as and always as

and the /etc/nginx/wordpress_params.regular contains the following to enable pretty urls in wordpress.

# WordPress pretty URLs: (as per
if (-f $request_filename) {
if (-d $request_filename) {
rewrite ^(.+)$ /index.php?q=$1 last;
# Enable nice permalinks for WordPress: (as per
error_page  404  = //index.php?q=$uri;
The problem however is that when I go to it doesnt work, it display this error message: No input file specified. works fine..

Any idea whats wrong?

PS. im quite a newb so might be missing something simple here:)
