nginx 403 error with all request

I have a nginx webserver with standard conf.
All requests return 403 error
In error log file, i have this info
... /jsGenerationForm/script_ES.js" failed (13: Permission denied), client ....

nginx is run with nobody user
file and folders has 777 permissions

What can be the solution?
thanks

Check the owner of the complete folder structure not just the webroot - this will depend on your config as to what the structure is.  This is usually the #1 cause of the error....
Ownership is set on the webroot correctly but the parent folders have different owners

You shouldn't be using nobody as a user, change it to nginx or some other limited user account - also make sure your files and folders are owned by the same user and that user is set in nginx.conf
And you shouldn't have permissions set to 777 for everything - they should be 644 except for any specific files/folders that need read/write permissions.
Also check the permissions on any parent folders for your web root.

Gracy, i am totally agree of what you are saying but i was mentioning that if he is using cpanel then to re-compile nginx, there is only single option called "Re-compile Apache"

Hope you got what i mentioned.
