I’ve configured my Nginx and it gives a ‘403 Forbidden’ I have no idea why

this is my conf

server {
        listen 80;
        listen [::]:80;


        root /var/www/;
        index index.php index.html;
        location / {
                try_files $uri $uri/ =404;

        autoindex on;
        autoindex_exact_size off;

Its giving the message

Apache/2.4.29 (Ubuntu) Server at Port 443

So you are using https and should also be listening on port 443. I see you are using letsencrypt, this usually gives the option of modifying your config automatically to configure https. Perhaps you did not permit this when installing your certificates.
