Nginx cannot be started.

Error Messages



After the Nginx process hangs/crashes, it cannot start through gadmin because the port is occupied.

Workaround Or Solution

Suggested troubleshooting methods

  1. Enter 'gadmin status -v nginx' to see which machine has the issue with Nginx

  2. Log in to that machine and enter 'ps aux | grep nginx' to find the Nginx processes

Use 'kill -9' on all remaining Nginx process IDs, then run 'gadmin start nginx' to start the Nginx services.
