Hi @sharsh2106,

The [emerg] unknown directive error message, means that you’ve added a line that doesn’t mean anything to Nginx in /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/default on line 48.

What I’ll suggest you to do is open the file on this line and see what is there, maybe there is a typo.

If you are not sure, you can post the content of the file here and we’ll try to further advise you.
