Error while running nginx -c /etc/nginx/nginx.conf -t

Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g., so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is:

I ran this command:

sudo certbot --nginx

It produced this output:

Error while running nginx -c /etc/nginx/nginx.conf -t.

nginx: [emerg] unknown directive "s" in /etc/nginx/conf.d/wordpress_http.conf:2
nginx: configuration file /etc/nginx/nginx.conf test failed

The nginx plugin is not working; there may be problems with your existing configuration.
The error was: MisconfigurationError('Error while running nginx -c /etc/nginx/nginx.conf -t.\n\nnginx: [emerg] unknown directive "s" in /etc/nginx/conf.d/wordpress_http.conf:2\nnginx: configuration file /etc/nginx/nginx.conf test failed\n')


My web server is (include version):
nginx version: nginx/1.18.0

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):

ubuntu 16
My hosting provider, if applicable, is:
I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don't know):
I'm using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):

The version of my client is (e.g. output of `certbot --version` or `certbot-auto --version` if you're using Certbot):

certbot-auto: command not found


Looks like you have an error in your nginx configuration:

nginx: [emerg] unknown directive "s" in /etc/nginx/conf.d/wordpress_http.conf:2

Open up that file, look at line 2.


that was the problem.
