I'm trying to upload a CMS to my /webapps/htdocs directory, but I'm being met with a 403 Forbidden error. I believe I need an nginx.conf file to make it work, but I'm more familiar with Apache's HTACCESS. I've only ever launched one NGINX site. Can anyone help me with steps I need to take to get my site running?

Similar to https://community.webfaction.com/questions/9741/nginx-conf maybe, but I don't know why I'd need to install nginx when it appears that's what's already running? Not to mention I don't know what installing a server thing even entails... I'm an HTML/CSS developer.

My site is http://danielfowler.webfactional.com/

You won't need the nginx.conf (if you did, you'd need to use nginx as a custom app), but you will need to use a Static/CGI/PHP application and not a Static-only app. PHP files and .htaccess won't be interpreted in a Static-only app.
