Help me to fix: ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED LEMP wordpress ubuntu 18.04

Hi Guys, I try to install wordpress locally on my ubuntu 18.04. I followed this instruction to install LEMP:

I got Nginx welcome screen, then I install wordpress using this tutorial:


Nginx & php work fine

Nginx status: Active php7.2-fpm: Active

Confiuration file: /etc/nginx/sites-available/default

server {
    listen 80;
    listen [::]:80;

    root /var/www/wordpress/html;

    index index.php index.html index.htm index.nginx-debian.html;

    server_name localhost;

    location / {
        try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$args;
    location ~ [^/]\.php(/|$) {	
	    fastcgi_split_path_info ^(.+?\.php)(/.*)$;
	    fastcgi_pass unix:/run/php/php7.0-fpm.sock;
	    fastcgi_index index.php;

	    include snippets/fastcgi-php.conf;

    location ~ /\.ht {
        deny all;

I set group permissions:

sudo chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www/wordpress/html

I already try solutions:

Im out of ideas. Any ideas on what my issue is and/or how to fix it?

Hello, @dmm

When this occurs you can also try accessing your site/app via alternative device on a different network in order to test if the issue is present only on a single device.

You can also check your Nginx error log for more detailed error as well.
