Hi there,

It looks like you’ve set too high values for your Nginx service. You need to lower down the values or add more RAM to your server because at the moment Nginx is trying to use more memory than you actually have on your server.

Feel free to share your Nginx configuration file here so that I could advise you on which values you might need to change.

Regards, Bobby
