403 error for one of my server blocks

Hi,

I installed nginx on an ubuntu server and then followed this tutorial
(which
I’ll quote from) to setup server blocks
https://digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-configure-single-and-multiple-wordpress-site-settings-with-nginx
.(I don’t do any of the WordPress config in that article). It uses a
common.conf that the server blocks inherit from.

In one of my server blocks, I setup a basic index.html page and set my
domain name for the server name in the server block file.

In the directory for my other server block, I setup a node app. That’s
the
one where I’m getting the 403 error.

Anyone know why this might be happening and how I might debug and/or fix
it?

server block

server {
# URL: Correct way to redirect URL’s
server_name demo.com;
rewrite ^/(.*)$ http://www.demo.com/$1 permanent;
}
server {
server_name www.demo.com;
root /home/demouser/sitedir;
access_log /var/log/nginx/www.demo.com.access.log;
error_log /var/log/nginx/www.demo.com.error.log;
include global/common.conf;
}

common.conf

Global configuration file.

What http request do you make that does not give the response that you
want?

What does the error log say about that request?
