As I was following this tutorial https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-wordpress-with-lemp-on-ubuntu-18-04, I came a long way. But then after step 5, Wordpress doesn’t start on my website.
The website keeps displaying the html message that I programmed at step 4 of this tutorial https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-linux-nginx-mysql-php-lemp-stack-on-ubuntu-20-04, which I installed in this file: /var/www/your_domain/index.html
I have to say that the OS I am using is Ubuntu 20.04 (spec Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS (GNU/Linux 5.4.0-45-generic x86_64)), but I don’t think that the problem is there.
My best guess is that the problem must have something to do with a redirection. Can anyone help me out here? There are also similar questions below the tutorial, but the answers proposed are not working for me.

Hi there @KatoVonKatz,
There are a couple of things which could be causing this problem.
/var/www/html/, you would need to remove the
index.htmlfile from there, you can do that with the following command:
This needs to be done as WordPress uses an
index.phpfile and that
index.htmlis not part of the WordPress core files anyway.
/var/www/wordpresspart if this is not the directory where you installed WordPress at.
Let me know how it goes! Regards, Bobby
@bobbyiliev , I will start a new threat here, because I can’t reply to you anymore via the above.
Yes, I did get an error report when I requested the nginx error log, but I can’t replicate that anymore.
But… now that I have the website up and running, as soon as I activate the code below, my website is down with an HTTP ERROR 500 message.
As soon as I remove the command, the website is active again. So, this really is the problem. I will share with you my error log. Maybe this has something to do with the transition from Ubuntu 18.04 to Ubuntu 20.04?
