Error while trying to upgrade nginx

I am trying to upgrade NGINX to the latest stable but keep getting this error:

Preparing to unpack .../nginx_1.8.0-1~trusty_amd64.deb ...
Unpacking nginx (1.8.0-1~trusty) over (1.4.6-1ubuntu3.3) ...
dpkg: error processing archive /var/cache/apt/archives/nginx_1.8.0-1~trusty_amd64.deb (--unpack):
 trying to overwrite '/etc/logrotate.d/nginx', which is also in package nginx-common 1.4.6-1ubuntu3.3
dpkg-deb: error: subprocess paste was killed by signal (Broken pipe)
Errors were encountered while processing:
 /var/cache/apt/archives/nginx_1.8.0-1~trusty_amd64.deb
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

I hav tried to upgrade to the mainline also but same errror. What am I missing?

The issue of the whitescreen problem is that fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name; needs to be added to the fastcgi_params file.

Hi I solved the problem almost instantly after my report regarding the blank page!

The problem is in the config files. Make sure that the correct site is active and not the deafult NGINX welcome site! Check the paths!

Hi, I faced similar error as damlr and I followed everything BrookDo mentioned. I am getting a white screen now. Can you tell me where to look now or how to debug the problem?

I’m not sure. On my end I am still using the version that ships with Ubuntu 14.04. Are you seeing anything in the logs for either Nginx or PHP?

I am only getting a white screen now… I can not figure out what the problem is at the moment… I think that the latest nginx does not work with the latest php5-fpm? Do you have any idea on what is going on here?

It worked but now PHP won’t be read… Hmmm

You may also want to try uninstalling with --purge first, as the third party repo with the newer Nginx build may not have the common package split out.
