Question

Server is down (Nginx as Front-End Proxy for Apache error)

Hi,

I went through Digital Ocean’s tutorial for https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-configure-nginx-as-a-front-end-proxy-for-apache and can’t get nginx to work with apache. I tried uninstalling nginx (sudo apt-get purge nginx) yet I still can’t find the nginx config file (sudo nano /etc/nginx/sites-available/example file). I followed the instructions word for word and copy and pasted everything.

I must have done something wrong, because now my site is down. Was I supposed to change any of the examples to match my site??

Any help is much appreciated, Thanks, Nicholaus
