Nginx Restart Fails and Show Not Running, But Site is Being Served.
I have a droplet that I initially set up host gitlab, just the stock installation. My trying to modify it to support other, very light weight sites. I followed the instructions from the Digital Ocean tutorial.
I followed all the steps and when attempting to restart
root@git ~# service nginx restart * Restarting nginx nginx [fail]
I’ve done some extensive searches of the web and got turned on to
nginx: the configuration file /etc/nginx/nginx.conf syntax is ok nginx: configuration file /etc/nginx/nginx.conf test is successful
When I check the nginx status:
service nginx status nginx is not running
/etc/init.d/nginx status * nginx is not running
I restarted my droplet and the netstat comes back with nginx listening. But when I run
service --status-all the nginx line is :
[ - ] nginx
What am I missing?
