Get failure installing Nginx in Ubuntu 16.04

February 6, 2018 150 views
Nginx Linux Commands Ubuntu 16.04

I've read other questions but didn't find an answer to my issue. Also as newbie I'm more lost than usual.

Well the problem is that trying to install Nginx and trying to see if ufw status get status: inactive

After this I write systemctl status nginx and get the next result:

pipo@pipo-X542UV:~$ sudo  systemctl status nginx
● nginx.service - A high performance web server and a reverse proxy server
   Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/nginx.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)
   Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since mar 2018-02-06 17:39:07 CET; 14min ago

 lines 1-14/14 (END)

Have tried several times uninstalling and installing again

What I'm doing wrong?

Thanks in advance!

sudo nginx -t will show you the errors if any that may exist in your configuration file(s).
