Unable to start nginx - failed to read pid from file /run/


I just created a brand new fedora box.

I then install nginx by running yum install nginx.

I tried to start nginx with the following commands:

$ systemctl enable nginx
$ systemctl restart nginx

However, I got the following error

Failed to read PID from file /run/ Invalid argument

And nginx is not running properly (going to the public IP address of the box does not return anything.

Does anyone know what I did wrong?
