I know this is stupid and i really regret this, but I accidentally type fuser -k 80/tcp and I just realized I killed port 80 and tcp, and the whole website is not accessible... any command to reverse this. Thank you

That command will kill the process that is using port 80. You just need to restart your webserver. For instance, if you are using Apache run:

sudo  service apache2 start

Sorry, newbie here. I used webuzo to handle the control panel, I thought it is using nginx, nginx and php-fpm has started but the website still not accesible. I tried starting up apache or apache2 but there are no process with that name. Currently using Ubuntu


  • If it's using Nginx, then the command would be:

    sudo  service nginx start

    Do you have a link to the instructions you followed? We might be better able to help if we knew more about your setup.
