Hi there,

In addition to what has already been mentioned, I could suggest following the steps here on how to troubleshoot common Nginx errors:

Feel free to share any of the errors that you find in your logs here so we could try and advise you further.

In addition to that, also feel free to share your Nginx server block configuration here as well.



Hi @tinyaquasquid,

Sorry for the inconvenience. First you must check that all services are working.

  1. service --status-all

If everything is OK, check the logs to see what is happening, i.e. for NGiNX the default log location is /var/log/nginx/*.log.

Let me know how it goes.
