Trying to install Comodo SSL cert and get "nginx: [emerg] "server" directive is not allowed here"

Posted April 1, 2016 2.4k views

I’ve tried editing both /etc/nginx/sites-enabled and /etc/nginx/nginx.conf to no avail, i get the same error every time!

What’s going wrong here?

I’m on Ubuntu 14.04.

You’ve got a server {...} block in the wrong spot, paste your nginx.conf and relevant files from sites-enabled and I’ll try to help you fix it.
