WP Staging issues - cannot log in

I have tried three WP Staging installs.
1st did not get beyond ‘Array’ displayed. Only db tables were installed
2nd (different site) install failed with error below.
3rd (again a different site) completed install. BUT I am running NGINX on all sites.

I normally have the following NGINX configuration directive. Whilst this is active I cannot log in to or otherwise access the staging site:
rewrite /$ /index.php break;

To get to the staging site I have to empty the existing NGINX configuration and insert this:
location /stage{
try_files $uri $uri/ /stage/index.php?$args;
}

Anyone got any ideas of what NGINX directives would allow BOTH the main and /stage site to work?

Oh, and below is the error returned on my second install attempt (MainWP child WAS installed)

Something went wrong! Error: MainWP Child plugin not detected. First, install and activate the plugin and add your site to your MainWP Dashboard afterward. If you continue experiencing this issue, check the child site for known plugin conflicts, or check the MainWP Community for help… Please try again.

Hi @iaeon,

thanks for reaching out.

Can you please post the community system report from your MainWP Dashboard for review? The report is located in your Dashboard under Status --> Server, on the top right of the page.

Be sure to use the button like the one below; this button hides all your private information:

Pressing the button auto-copies the report to your clipboard then just paste it in a reply here.

This is the report from the MainWP site. The hosting environment is fundamentally the same as the sites I have tried using WP Staging on.
