Nginx WordPress Ubuntu 16.04

I am following this tutorial right here: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-wordpress-with-lemp-on-ubuntu-16-04

And I am on Step #4. I installed curl and followed the directions step-by-step.

I get this error (http://imgur.com/hDUiJch) when I run the command:

curl -O https://wordpress.org/latest.tar.gz

I think you accidentally typed “-0” (dash zero) instead of “-O” (dash capital-letter-O) when you ran the command.

That’s a strange error message. You can wget to download files.

wget https://wordpress.org/latest.tar.gz
