I am trying to install nginx with php but when I am following a guide, like this one: I am always told to add that repository (sudo add-apt-repository ppa:brianmercer/php) but I can't.

I'll just get "Error: can't find signing_key_fingerprint at" and when I go to that website I find that there is a fingerprint specified but still I get that error message. Is there anyway to specify it myself?

And for the last thing, how I can fix this so I can continue my installation towards a working nginx enviroment with php.

Thanks for your advice and better wisdom.

Run this:

$ sudo apt-key adv --keyserver --recv-keys 8D0DC64F
$ sudo apt-get update

This solve your problem.

I have the same problem, and am not even sure you can fix it.

In the mean time, you can add this repo sudo add-apt-repository ppa:brianmercer/php5 as per this tutorial :
