Needing help to get nginx to listen on port 80
Ive setup nginx for the first time on Ubuntu 20.4 following the guide https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-nginx-on-ubuntu-20-04 - in preparation for a wordpress install - but I cant get the server to respond to http requests - nginx status reports its active and running - and ufw status also reports port 80 is open - Ive reset the firewall using this guide https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/how-to-reset-the-firewall-on-ubuntu
and attempted again to enable http but no joy - this port scanner tells me the port is closed https://www.ipvoid.com/port-scan/ which explains why no response for http requests but how to open it is my problem.
