Nginx was installed from Repository. Initially, it was working fine. However, I un linked default conf file in sites-enabled and added new virtual hosts file in sites-available folder and linked it using ln -s. nginx -t passes after restarting but it does not listen on port 80.

However if i copy the actual virtual hosts file in sites-enabled folder. After restart,it works once again. On a side note, same happens for default virtual hosts file. Here is the out put of ls -lR for nginx diretory

  • Please post the output of 'ls -lR /etc/nginx' command – sendmoreinfo Dec 27 '12 at 20:11
  • kindly see the directory listing of nginx, i guess it has to do something with default file permissions – Umair Bussi Dec 30 '12 at 12:37

Permissions are fine, but symbolic link is broken -- it should point to ../sites-available/default

  • thanks, my bad. i also got it figured by comparing the directory listing output of default installation and my way of linking files :) – Umair Bussi Dec 30 '12 at 17:37
