I'm sure I'm getting to nginx; the 404 message shows nginx as well.

I tried using curl on both index.html and index.nginx-debian.html and
got identical results for both.

Okay, here's the default config:

# Default server configuration
upstream php-handler {
    server unix:/run/php/php7.2-fpm.sock;

server {
    if ($host = www.koalatyworks.com) {
        return 301 https://$host$request_uri;
    } # managed by Certbot

    if ($host = koalatyworks.com) {
        return 301 https://$host$request_uri;
    } # managed by Certbot

    listen 80;
    listen [::]:80;
        server_name koalatyworks.com www.koalatyworks.com;

    # SSL configuration
    listen 443 ssl http2;
    listen [::]:443 ssl http2;
        server_name koalatyworks.com www.koalatyworks.com;

    root /var/www/html;

    # Add index.php to the list if you are using PHP
    index index.html index.htm index.nginx-debian.html index.php;

    return 301 https://$host$request_uri;
/etc/letsencrypt/live/koalatyworks.com/fullchain.pem; # managed by Certbot
/etc/letsencrypt/live/koalatyworks.com/privkey.pem; # managed by Certbot

    location / {
        # First attempt to serve request as file, then
        # as directory, then fall back to displaying a 404.
        try_files $uri $uri/ =404;

I hope that helps!
