Telnet to it: on the command line, do telnet localhost 8787, then do
GET / HTTP/1.1 and hit enter twice. You'll see if it's replying or
not, and what. Based on your config, nginx will listen and respond on
8787. Do you have another webserver listening on 80? You can use
netstat -lp to see which service is listening on which port. Use a
simple html file, it'll reply with 200. Check your site's code.
