Configuring Nginx to forward PHP requests

I’m getting this error when restarting nginx:

“fastcgi_pass” directive is not allowed here in /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/wordpress:65

Any help would be appreciated.

I’m trying to use Nginx and install wordpress instead of the usual. Is that wise?

Please pastebin the contents of /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/wordpress –
