It is on an Ubuntu box and when I do sudo nginx -t syntax is ok and test is successful and I see nothing apparent. This happened after a restart.

A good first step when receiving an error is to check nginx’s error logs for more information. This command will print the last (most recent) 50 lines of the log file:

sudo tail -n 50 /var/log/nginx/error.log
