Cannot start and configure Nginx reverse proxy due to running Apache
I installed a wordpress droplet. It’s using an Apache server on Ubuntu 18.04.
My app only uses wordpress for the dashboard and API. I have a nextjs node/react app running with server-side rendering to display the actual website.
So, I’m following the tutorial on configuring the nodejs app: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-a-node-js-application-for-production-on-ubuntu-18-04
Therefore, I was trying to set up the reverse proxy with Nginx. However, Nginx servise is inactive (dead), and I cannot start it. Looks like this is because I have Apache running at the same time.
What should I do in this case?
