Hi. I wanted to install ssl certificate. I tried to restart nginx but it failed. I saved a copy before deleting default file in /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/ . original default file was looking blue on terminal. I have recreated default file with old working configurations. But it looks grey on terminal now And I cannot restart nginx service. it is always failed. I don’t know how to make it blue again and back to old settings. I think Original file had some file permissions or something else. Could you help please ? Droplet is Ubuntu 14.04 x64


Just in case someone deleted/mis-configured his default block file in sites-available
