Hi @metalcode03,

It seems you have an error with your configuration file. Unless you show it to us, we won’t be able to help you out.

Having said that, you can check this article on how to configure Server Blocks(Vhost configuration files) on Nginx and maybe you’ll be able to determine the root of the problem in your case - https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-nginx-server-blocks-virtual-hosts-on-ubuntu-16-04
