403 Forbidden  
nginx/1.12.1 (Ubuntu)

Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description:    Ubuntu 17.10
Release:        17.10
Codename:       artful

I have many virtual sites running on my server identical to this one, but
for some reason I have run into the 403 wall.

Permissions for my virtual website dir 
sudo chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www/html/C1/
sudo chmod -R 755 /var/www/html/C1/
drwxrwxrwx  3 www-data www-data 4096 May 23 12:37 C1

The virtual directory is as follows.. and is linked to.
sudo ln -s /etc/nginx/sites-available/c1 /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/

server {
    listen 80;
    listen [::]:80;
    root /var/www/html/C1;
    index  index.html index.php index.htm;
    server_name  c1inventory.xxxxxxx.com;

    location / {
        try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$query_string;

    location ~ \.php$ {
         try_files $uri =404;
         fastcgi_split_path_info  ^(.+\.php)(/.+)$;
         fastcgi_index            index.php;
         fastcgi_pass             unix:/var/run/php/php7.1-fpm.sock;
         include                  fastcgi_params;
         fastcgi_param   PATH_INFO       $fastcgi_path_info;
         fastcgi_param   SCRIPT_FILENAME


Dump from the nginx error log.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
