I'm using Plesk and turned on the nginx service. Now my sites are pointing to the Apache page. I have also looked at the errors within the nginx error log but I really don't know where to go from there.

This is what I am getting in the error log:

2014/02/03 22:01:57 [notice] 12123#0: using inherited sockets from "6;7;"
2014/02/04 11:43:49 [emerg] 888#0: bind() to IP:80 failed (99: Cannot assign requested address)

Where IP is my IP Address. Here below is my nginx.conf file:

#user  nginx;
worker_processes  1;

#error_log  /var/log/nginx/error.log;
#error_log  /var/log/nginx/error.log  notice;
#error_log  /var/log/nginx/error.log  info;

#pid        /var/run/nginx.pid;

events {
 worker_connections  1024;

http {
   include       mime.types;
    default_type  application/octet-stream;

#log_format  main  '$remote_addr - $remote_user [$time_local] "$request" '
#                  '$status $body_bytes_sent "$http_referer" '
#                  '"$http_user_agent" "$http_x_forwarded_for"';

#access_log  /var/log/nginx/access.log  main;

sendfile        on;
#tcp_nopush     on;

#keepalive_timeout  0;
keepalive_timeout  65;
#tcp_nodelay        on;

#gzip  on;
#gzip_disable "MSIE [1-6]\.(?!.*SV1)";

server_tokens off;

include /etc/nginx/conf.d/*.conf;

Where's your server { block? –  Nathan C Feb 4 at 18:24
Some process already listening IP:80. Just findout it by netstat -anp | grep :80 –  Oleg Neumyvakin Feb 5 at 9:40

This is because you have mess the configuration using plesk 'repair' scripts. To solve this, make sure that in /etc/apache2/ports.conf ports are set correctly, instead of 80 set to 7080 and for 443(ssl) use 7081. Change the assigned ports for apache, and run httdmng --reconfigure-server, then start apache and nginx. Httpdmng is located in /usr/local/psa/admin/sbin. Good luck
