Error 521, web server is down. Wordpress site not working.

Hi all,

I recently added Nginx to my server to host an additional website on my VPS. I got the new website working.

Though now my other website which is a Wordpress website is returning an error when I try to access its URL: Error 521, Web server is down.

I’ve tried my best to find a solution, but I can’t find anything that works for me.

I’d appreciate any advice! :)
