I am running nginx on Windows Server 2008 R2 (x64) as a windows service. I am using Windows Service Wrapper for that. (Actually, I have followed this tutorial: http://mercurial.selenic.com/wiki/HgServeNginxWindows.)
The service is running ok. However, the server does not process the signals (e.g. stop / reload).
This means if I stop the service, nginx is not stopped. (I have to kill it.)
And when I want to reload the configuration from command line:
C:\Users\Administrator>E:\apath\nginx\nginx.exe -p E:\apath\nginx -c E:\apath\nginx.conf -s reload
nginx: [error] OpenEvent("Global\ngx_reload_4268") failed (5: Access is denied)
I am running the command as administrator and the service is running under NETWORK SERVICE user.
Any hints or similar issues?
