browser says server is offline

Werulz asked:

I just ordered a server from serverdeals.org . I am having a weird problem that even support can’t find out what is that

They gave me a raw server and i install nginx just as i wanted(its successful)
However when i went to http://serverip/ , browsers says page not available(aka offline)

What could it be …First time i am getting this
Its definely not an installation error on my part as i have installed nginx on numerous servers till date

What can the server guys missed?
I can ssh and login via ftp fine though

UPDATE:

My answer:


Make sure you actually started nginx:

service nginx start

Make sure you opened port 80 in the firewall:

system-config-firewall-tui   # (Red Hat/CentOS)
# (You're on your own for anything else)
