Question

Nginx Failed... Failed to start A high performance web server and a reverse proxy server.

I rebooted the computer, and this happened.

Why did this happen?

Please help me.

sudo systemctl status nginx

Hi @khs32101,

Looking at the error log provided, it seems like there are typos in your Nginx config files. The following two lines are the most important ones:

07 23 10:55:41 gblsvips-sv nginx[167493]: nginx: [emerg] unexpected end of file, expecting “;” or “}in /etc/nginx/c>

07 23 10:55:41 gblsvips-sv nginx[167493]: nginx: configuration file /etc/nginx/nginx.conf test failed

Check both of them and see if you can spot the typo in there. If you can’t please post both files and we’ll try to assist.
