Hi @enairodiaz,

In such situations, I always recommend checking out the Nginx error log file. In the error_log file you should be able to see the exact reason behind this failure and act upon it.

Normally the file is located in /var/log/nginx/. In that folder it should be called error_log. What you can do is try and get the last lines of the file with

tail -n 30 /path/to/error_log

In there check the messages that say ERROR those are the ones you care about.
