403 Forbidden when changing index.html to index.php
I hope someone can help me here. I just want to change the index.html to index.php, but when I do so I get the 403 forbidden error. I followed a bunch of tutorials on permission and installing php etc. to no avail. I am a complete newbie, so most of the time I don’t really know what I am doing but I am trying to follow the tutorials.
If someone could give me complete newbie intructions on how to solve this, I’d be very grateful. I learned how to access files and other simple stuff but not much more.
I am using nginx on ubuntu. With the html files my website works fine, but I need it .php to run something.
