Hello, @marcofarinasso

You can use the service command instead of systemctl , for example to start apache:

  • sudo service apache2 start

I know that you’ve mentioned LEMP stack so the command for nginx will be the same:

  • sudo service nginx start

You can check the following article on DEV on how to setup the LAMP stack on WSL2:
