I am trying to setup LEMP (Linux, Nginx, MySQL, PHP) stack on my PC to use with Wordpress. I follow the instructions on this website. I see that the folder of wordpress in www folder was successfully extracted.

I can also verify that Nginx is running. However, I don't know how to get the wordpress index.php page on the browser.

enter image description here

On windows, I simply go to the browser and type localhost/webprojectfoldername or

However, when I try to access the index.php of wordpress via localhost, I get the Apache page.

enter image description here

I would like to use Nginx as server but not Apache. I guess at this point, I don't know what servername or ipaddress to put on the browser to get to Nginx's page or Wordpress's index.php

I don't know how to identify the servername that was setup. On Windows, I simply use localhost or

Any thoughts on how I identify it on Ubuntu?

I'd appreciate any help.

Thank you.

    nginx is listening on a different port

    By default, HTTP works over port 80, but when you connect to that port you are reaching Apache.

    You need to find the port nginx is listening on (from the article you link to: listen 80 default_server; shows 80 but lets say it was 81) and connect to that instead: http://localhost:81/`

    nginx and apache are trying to listen on the same port and apache won

    You need to turn off Apache (and possibly restart nginx).
