    Nginx 1.21.x
    MariaDB 10.x
    You seem to be having alot of issues with Centmin Mod install, is it same VPS server that had MariaDB password setup issues?

    Just for reference for troubleshooting initial install, nginx and PHP issues after install/update.
    what's output for command for nginx config check debugging nginx -t with the link in?

    When you create a new nginx vhost domain via centmin.sh menu option 2 or menu option 22 or via /usr/bin/nv cli command line, you will create the Nginx vhost files and directories. You will get an outputted the path location where it will create the domain name's vhost conf file named newdomain.com.conf (and newdomain.com.ssl.conf if you selected yes to self signed SSL)
    • Nginx vhost conf path will be at /usr/local/nginx/conf/conf.d/newdomain.com.conf
    • Nginx HTTP/2 SSL vhost conf path will be at /usr/local/nginx/conf/conf.d/newdomain.com.ssl.conf
    • Nginx Self-Signed SSL Certificate Directory at /usr/local/nginx/conf/ssl/newdomain.com
    • Vhost public web root will be at /home/nginx/domains/newdomain.com/public
    • Vhost log directory will be at /home/nginx/domains/newdomain.com/log
    Please post the contents of /usr/local/nginx/conf/conf.d/newdomain.com.conf and if applicable /usr/local/nginx/conf/conf.d/newdomain.com.ssl.conf wrapped in CODE tags (outlined at How to use forum BBCODE code tags)

    what is output of these commands in ssh
    Code (Text):
    curl -I https://domain.com
    

    Code (Text):
    curl -I https://www.domain.com
    

    Code (Text):
    curl -I http://domain.com
    

    Code (Text):
    curl -I http://www.domain.com
