I am running CentOS 7 on a droplet that I’ll be using as a web server. When I go to http://my_server_ip, it displays the “Welcome to CentOS” page.
I’ve followed the instructions to install, start, and enable nginx, but I still see the CentOS (not the nginx) welcome page.
Instructions from DO on installing nginx that I followed: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-nginx-on-debian-10
I also found that even when I turn off nginx, I still am able to get to that webpage, so it leads me to believe that this is interfering somehow.
I’ve also run the command “sudo netstat -tulpn” with the following result, but I don’t see anything listening on port 80, so I’m a bit confused:

Based on the
netstatoutput that you’ve provided, I don’t see Nginx running on your server.
I’ve noticed that you’ve shared the article on how to install Nginx on Debian 10. I would recommend following the steps from this guide here on how to install Nginx on CentOS 7 here:
Also, on another note, there are no services listening on port 80 you should not really see anything when visiting your IP address via HTTP. I could suggest two things:
Let me know how it goes!
