Can you help me restore my web access, or helper how to backup one page using ftp(Which folder etc…)

Welcome to nginx!

If you see this page, the nginx web server is successfully installed and working. Further configuration is required.

For online documentation and support please refer to nginx.org. Commercial support is available at nginx.com.

Thank you for using nginx.

Still not working. When i type nginx -t

nginx: the configuration file /etc/nginx/nginx.conf syntax is ok nginx: configuration file /etc/nginx/nginx.conf test is successful

When I type sudo service nginx restart

Nothing Happens

When I visit www.b2fox.com a download starts lol

There are a way to remove and acess my website without nginx, or other solution?

Hello,

I believe the issue has been quite well documented here : https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/website-only-show-welcome-to-nginx

To summaries the replies there, I would suggest you to update your /etc/nginx/sites-available/default to include a link to your wordpress page, if you are using port 80 and wordpress try changing the root location under server within that file so it looks like this root /var/www/html; After that do a sudo service nginx restart and refresh the page.

If the issue continues afterwards, please provide the configuration file in order to give a more pinpoint answer.
