I installed nginx form the standard repositories that come with fresh ubuntu server 11.04. I realized it installed and old version. At the moment the last stable is 1.0.6. So I followed this guide http://wiki.nginx.org/Install and apparently updated the package. But then I show the version with nginx -v it still shows the old version. Is this a configuration file not updated or it actually never updated?

root@vps:~# apt-cache policy nginx
  Installed: 1.0.6-0ppa1~natty
  Candidate: 1.0.6-0ppa1~natty
  Version table:

What do you get from apt-cache policy nginx? –  Shane Madden Sep 16 '11 at 14:28
I added the output, so basically it's just a "visual problem"? Seems like i have the latest –  Sandro Antonucci Sep 17 '11 at 22:18
