This is the configuration file of nginx but I get connection refused error

server { charset UTF-8; listen 80; server_name my ip; root /var/www/language/videosapp; access_log /var/log/videosapp/nginx/access.log; error_log /var/log/videosapp/nginx/error.log; client_max_body_size 50M;

Hi @chefvillas,

Can you check one of the following

First, please make sure Nginx is actually listening on port 80

netstat -tulpen | grep port 80

Once you have confirmed that, I’ve noticed you are using proxy pass with port 8000. Is anything listening to that port 8000?

Additionally, I’ll recommend checking your Nginx error log. It should display the error and the reason behind the error.
