NGINX wont start

  • Posted January 30, 2014

I install virtualmin on centos earlier, then replaced apcahe with NGINX, it worked for a while then it seemed to stop and when i restart it this is what i get below. Any ideas why ?

Failed to start service : Starting nginx: nginx: [emerg] bind() to 0.0.0.0:80 failed (98: Address already in use) nginx: [emerg] bind() to 188.226.142.188:443 failed (98: Address already in use) nginx: [emerg] bind() to 0.0.0.0:80 failed (98: Address already in use) nginx: [emerg] bind() to 188.226.142.188:443 failed (98: Address already in use) nginx: [emerg] bind() to 0.0.0.0:80 failed (98: Address already in use) nginx: [emerg] bind() to 188.226.142.188:443 failed (98: Address already in use) nginx: [emerg] bind() to 0.0.0.0:80 failed (98: Address already in use) nginx: [emerg] bind() to 188.226.142.188:443 failed (98: Address already in use) nginx: [emerg] bind() to 0.0.0.0:80 failed (98: Address already in use) nginx: [emerg] bind() to 188.226.142.188:443 failed (98: Address already in use) nginx: [emerg] still could not bind() [FAILED]

Turns out apache has turned on again

Please, struggle today with this as well. No matter if I going to put my server block conf into working version, I got this error. :(

Hi i got same issue there. and lsof -i :80 has following. how do i fix it?

nginx 9738 root 6u IPv4 25379 0t0 TCP *:http (LISTEN) nginx 9738 root 7u IPv6 25380 0t0 TCP *:http (LISTEN) nginx 9739 nginx 6u IPv4 25379 0t0 TCP *:http (LISTEN) nginx 9739 nginx 7u IPv6 25380 0t0 TCP *:http (LISTEN)

it is better to remove apache to make sure only nginx working!!

The issue sound more like you have something running on the same port and address. What does lsof -i :80 return
