Installing WordPress on Lemp Stack - 403 forbidden

Hello,

I have been following through https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-wordpress-with-lemp-on-ubuntu-20-04

However I have got to the end bit, and I cant login to the dashboard. it came up with the initial welcome page and success page then just shows, 403 forbidden. What have I done wrong or missed out?

Hello, @patrickb

Can you please confirm if you’ve also followed the steps from the Prerequisites part of the article, e.g the initial LEMP stack part.

If you’ve followed that you should have UFW enabled and you can double check if Nginx HTTP is enabled.

You can also try to clear your browser’s cache or try to access the WordPress admin area using an alternative browser.
