This is probably just something simple I've forgotten, but it's foxing me...
I've been using nginx for years in its various incarnations for years
now, on Debian and Ubuntu. I've just installed Ubuntu 10.10, and
installed nginx from the repository. I try out 'http://localhost/' and
instead of the normal 'Welcome to nginx' message, I get 'Forbidden' (the
403 error). So, I create a little test.html file in the nginx directory
(/var/www/nginx-default) and try to access that. I get a 404 not found
error. Nothing I've done so far has got me past these 403 and 404
errors. Is this some permissions error, in which case what do I have to
do? nginx is running as user 'www-data' (by default). Changing this to
root didn't help.
Please, someone, point out to me what I might be doing wrong. Don't
worry about embarrassing me with my stupidity...
