I used this article https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-set-up-nginx-virtual-hosts-server-blocks-on-ubuntu-12-04-lts--3 to setup virtual hosts on nginx but I’m getting a 403 forbidden error.
The article tells us to do this to set permissions
You can replace the "www-data" below with the appropriate username. sudo chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www/example.com/public_html Additionally, it is important to make sure that everyone is able to read our new files. sudo chmod 755 /var/www
I therefore did this with my username
sudo chown -R username:username /var/www/example.com/public_html
but I’m still getting the 403 forbidden errror. Do you know anything I can try?
