Try changing the location again. Maybe it will work this time.

Or alternatively:

That will be whatever you got back -- the content of /var/tmp/myfile.css,
or the content of another file, or some error message. There might be
more details available in log files.

Provide the relevant part of nginx.conf from a machine where you saw
the problem. If you don't know what is the relevant part, provide the
whole thing.

It doesn't have to be your "live" config, but it should be a config that
you ran on a test machine. The smaller the config, the better.

If you make it easy for someone to run the same server config as you,
and run the same client commands as you, and see the same error output
as you; then you make it easy for that person to try to help resolve the
problem you saw.

If you don't, you don't.
