I am getting a 404 error on my Nginx server running wordpress. The following error is on my nginx error log. Does anyone know why I am having this issue. Please let me know what other information would be helpful to add to the questions to diagnose the issue.

Error on Nginx error log:

2016/01/18 20:39:53 [error] 1623#0: *861 open() “/usr/share/nginx/html/50x.html” failed (2: No such file or directory), client: IP-INTENTIONALLY-REMOVED, server:, request: “POST /xmlrpc.php HTTP/1.0”, upstream: “fastcgi://unix:/var/run/php5-fpm.sock”, host: “IP-INTENTIONALLY-REMOVED”


Hi, i have some error like that,

Appear like this!👇

nginx error! The page you are looking for is temporarily unavailable. Please try again later. Website Administrator Something has triggered an error on your website. This is the default error page for nginx that is distributed with Fedora. It is located /usr/share/nginx/html/50x.html

You should customize this error page for your own site or edit the error_page directive in the nginx configuration file /etc/nginx/nginx.conf.

Thank you!!! That was the issue and I found the solution in the community.

Maybe your xmlrpc.php is under attack (pingback/trackback spam). You can check this by renaming the file.
