Hi, I have nginx and a wordpress website running on my vps. During development I used deny all and only allow my ip in the nginx vhost. Which worked fine, I could dev the website and the rest of the world would get a 403 forbidden.
Now I tried to make my website public (by removing the deny all line). But visitors still get to see the 403 error. Yet I can still see the website just fine. As far as I can see the file permissions are all set as it should, recursively from /var/www/ with 755 on folders and 644 on files. The owner and group is set as www-data. Ofcourse I reloaded nginx.
Am I missing something? Any help is much appreciated!
