first of all, to all the makers, thank you for all the hard work in making EE such a fantastic tool. I’m new to this, so please bear with me if I’m off track
I have installed EE (on top of an already working LEMP stack, replacing nginx with nginx-custom) and created a default website with
sudo ee site create example.com --wpfc
Now I have a nice-looking default site, but I can’t log in to it - and I don’t understand why.
Here’s what I tried:
- double-check admin username in SQL
- update admin password with
ee site update example.com --password
- re-directed to my original WP site (which was still in /usr/share/nginx/example.com). Here I can log in just fine.
- nginx -t shows no issues
The strange thing is that the site is not giving any feedback after inputting credentials (i.e. it doesn’t tell me that the credentials are incorrect). My original site does give such feedback.
One possible issue is that, when installing nginx-custom, I chose to keep the old /etc/nginx/nginx.conf file – and now I’m not really sure what the right configuration for EE is (by the way… can anyone point me in the right direction to configure nginx / my server to send emails?)
Thanks for any help you might be able to offer! Warner
