NGINX restart suddenly gives me : stop / waiting, start / running , process 1920

Well, this is odd … everything was working fine just a week ago and now I tried a : sudo service nginx restart … and I get this :

nginx stop/waiting nginx start/running, process 1920

I have changed nothing since the last time.

Anyone know what this means and why it’s happening ? I am using NGINX 1.10.1 / Ubuntu 14.04 … it was working normally with restart / reload etc. before, and now not…

The output you have shared indicates that you requested a restart from the nginx service and it performed a successful restart. There is nothing here that indicates a problem.

Are there other symptoms to the problem you are seeing?
