The error messages here do not point to a specific issue. Can you share your nginx site configuration(s) from /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/`

Can you clarify about your use of Apache? Your post title indicates that you are having an issue with both web servers but your post does not include any details about your use of Apache. These two web servers can both be run on the same system but only if they are utilizing different ports. Nginx can be used as a caching reverse_proxy for Apache but I am not sure whether this is the configuration you’re working with.

  • /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/ the file is empty

    • /etc/nginx/sites-enabled is a directory that should contain your site configuration(s). On installation of Nginx the file /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/default is created.

      • The server was working well . But I open my control panel ( vestacp) ’, and stopped a site from within the client to be in the case of (Suspend) and then this problem occurred

      • tell me what i do now ?
