403 Error - Wordpress, Nginx, 2nd domain on 1 droplet

I setup a wordpress droplet on Ubuntu and the first site I have on there works fine. I wanted to add a second site to the server so I followed the instructions here. Granted, these are specific to apache and I’m on nginx, they should be pretty close.

When I go to the site, I get a 403 Forbidden and the following error in my nginx error log:

2017/02/17 00:53:04 [error] 29074#29074: *5 directory index of “/var/www/lazerusdesigns/” is forbidden, client: 73.60.85.71, server: www.lazerusdesigns.com, request: “GET / HTTP/1.1”, host: “www.lazerusdesigns.com

2017/02/17 00:53:04 [error] 29074#29074: *6 open() “/var/www/lazerusdesigns/favicon.ico” failed (2: No such file or directory), client: 73.60.85.71, server: www.lazerusdesigns.com, request: “GET /favicon.ico HTTP/1.1”, host: “www.lazerusdesigns.com

I tried checking the permissions on the folder and files where the site is stored.

In my wordpress file in sites-available, I added the following:

server { root /var/www/lazerusdesigns; server_name www.lazerusdesigns.com; access_log /var/log/nginx/www.lazerusdesigns.com.access.log; error_log /var/log/nginx/www.lazerusdesigns.com.error.log; location ~.php$ { include snippets/fastcgi-php.conf; fastcgi_pass 127.0.0.1:9000; fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name; include fastcgi_params; } }

I’m at a loss. Any thoughts anyone? BTW, I’m no linux guru so you may have to spell out what you’re thinking lol.

Okay, its fixed. I had to open my php.ini file and change the value of cgi.fix_pathinfo from 0 to 1.

Its fixed. I had to edit my php.ini and change the value of cgi.fix_pathinfo from 0 to 1.

If I add index index.php; to my server block, I get a 502 error again.

This is the error.log now.
