In this tutorial, I am going to share the how to start/stop Nginx server. Below are the terminal commands to stop and start the Nginx server.
NGINX is a free, open-source, high-performance HTTP server and reverse proxy, as well as an IMAP/POP3 proxy server. NGINX is known for its high performance, stability, rich feature set, simple configuration, and low resource consumption.
Stopping the server:
sudo systemctl stop nginx
Starting the server:
sudo systemctl start nginx
Check the Nginx server status:
sudo systemctl status nginx
The same commands can be used to start / stop / restart the nginx server on a Ubuntu Linux:
sudo service nginx start
sudo service nginx stop
sudo service nginx restart
Use the following command to test the Nginx configuration for any syntax or system errors:
sudo nginx -t
