Question

Nginx on Debian 7 not displaying web pages

Hi,

I have just set up a debian 7 droplet with nginx and PHP installed. When I visited the IP for the server it displayed the default web page “welcome to nginx”. I used “sudo nano” add some HTML to this file just to check I was reading the correct file.

After saving the page will no longer display. Is there an issue with the file format after save?

Any thoughts gratefully received!

Thanks

Could be owner of the file, file permissions, etc… When you say won’t display, is there server error or just blank white page? You could check the nignx error log.
