[SOLVED!]Neither nginx nor httpd works

For a few days I have been dealing with a "mysqli extension" problem on httpd. I switched to nginx, I guess it was more difficult to configure. I must have missed something or done something incomplete. But I can't see it. When I try to connect to localhost I get a 403 Forbidden error and localhost/wordpress gives me a not found error.

nginx: configuration file /etc/nginx/nginx.conf test failed

FOR NGINX: I have this curse on me that either the conf file or the default was missing. Conf was empty etc. I reinstalled it, I found it on the internet. So I don't know if I missed even the smallest thing. Please ask anything you can think of. I reinstalled again and again, waiting for your solutions.

### I edited 3 times and solved a lot of problems but still there is problems ###

HTTPD/APACHE (much less problems)

I tried back to apache, wordpress installation doesn't work, phpinfo doesn't work. But the host is active. I can open the .txt file. I commented the user/group I added in php.ini.

Alias /wordpress "/usr/share/webapps/wordpress"
<Directory "/usr/share/webapps/wordpress">
	AllowOverride All
	Options FollowSymlinks
	Require all granted

httpd_error log:

[Mon Nov 20 17:50:17.796597 2023] [proxy:error] [pid 9878] (13)Permission denied: AH02454: FCGI: attempt to connect to Unix domain socket /run/php-fpm/php-fpm.sock (*:80) failed

Thank you very much in advance

Re: [SOLVED!]Neither nginx nor httpd works

Oh, my God! The wrath of the Internet! It took me 3 days and I didn't see a warning about this anywhere. I was always misguided. IF ANYONE IS READING THIS NOW THAT IS FIGHTING THIS PROBLEM: The operating system is everything, friends. I didn't have www-data. They kept saying user/group or something on the internet. http should be http. AI has not found a solution so far either. Of course, when you've been trying for 3 days, there's no brain left.

Stick with Apache/httpd. If there is a problem, reinstall it. I had to deal with nginx because of mysqli and other reasons. php-fpm was not installed, I needed it. Don't look at the status, don't forget, I deleted the wrong code in php.ini. It says line 400 but it ends in 100 lines, keep in mind. The last wordpress white screen problem came. The solution is as follows:

sudo chown -R http:http /path/to/your_wordpress
sudo chmod 755 /path/to/your_wordpress
