    Greetings, having some issues with my nginx configuration file. I tried numerous times to troubleshoot by adding taking away code to see if it will work. :) That is how newbies do it. Anyway I can not get passed this specific error code. I am using:

    Code (Text):
    [root@srv1 ~]# nginx -v
    nginx version: nginx/1.11.7
    

    The error shows unknown directive "#"?

    Code (Text):
    [root@srv1 ~]# nginx -t
    nginx: [emerg] unknown directive "#" in /usr/local/nginx/conf/conf.d/onthecheap.store.conf:9
    nginx: configuration file /usr/local/nginx/conf/nginx.conf test failed
    


    I suppose that would mean that something is incorrectly commented out but I really do not know. Here is my nginx configuration file.

    Code (Text):

    May have something to do with copying and pasting, will retry with nano.

    It looks like there is a # somewhere it shouldnt be, I copied your conf and highlight all the # and the only 2 that stood out for me are on this line.

    Code:
     # http://nginx.org/en/docs/http/ngx_http_spdy_module.html#spdy_headers_comp
            # http://nginx.org/en/docs/http/ngx_http_ssl_module.html#ssl_buffer_size
    even though the intial line of code is # out, i dont know if the second # on each line is causing an issue.

    Use Sublime text to review your code.

    Im a complete newb at this so i may be wrong, just tried to help.

    I think I may have fixed it with the Lord's help. As a newb, I am looking to copy and paste text but as I read over these forums you must us Unix utf8. So I downloaded Notepad ++ and went to, Edit-->EOL CONVERSION --> UNIX. That fixed the first error. The second error was I did not rename the ssl.key to the correct key file name. Lastly, I updated the X-Cart code that was given via their help documents. God bless you!
