Moving from apache2 to nginx (wordpress based site)

Hey guys I tried moving my wordpress based site from apache2 to nginx by following these tutorials:


However these two sorta conflict as virtual min has plugins to check in its settings (uncheck all apache, check nginx web server) and the tutorial the creation and editing /etc/nginx/sites-available/default

In my attempt to switch over I end up with a blank site (that is if I visited it I would just get a blank page without anything loading, however I can tell nginx was active since if I tried to access a file directly it worked).

Should I try disregarding the second article and only stopping apache/disabling it in plugin/features and then enabling nginx?

Or something else altogether?
