I have a VPS which is running plesk, I wanted to use a nginx web server and update the php version but I believe there could’ve been some sort of conflict with plesk when I tried to install nginx.
I tried doing it in command line, but something has gone wrong and I have no idea what’s wrong or how to go about fixing it. I don’t think it allows me to install any packages now?
