I am trying to start my nginx server.

When I type $> /etc/init.d/nginx start, I have a message appearing "Starting nginx: Ok", and then nothing happens.

When I type sudo lsof -nP -i | grep LISTEN, I didnt have a message with nginx(port 80)

My error.log file is empty. I dont have any idea. Please help me.

Nginx version: nginx/1.4.6 (Ubuntu)

Here is my /etc/nginx/nginx.conf file:

worker_processes  1; 

events {
    worker_connections  1024;
}    

http {
server_names_hash_bucket_size  64;        

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

sendfile        on;




keepalive_timeout  65;

#gzip  on;

gzip on;
gzip_http_version 1.0;
gzip_comp_level 2;
gzip_proxied any;
gzip_min_length  1100;
gzip_buffers 16 8k;
gzip_types text/plain text/css application/x-javascript text/xml application/xml application/xml+rss text/javascript;

include /etc/nginx/site_enabled/*;}

Here is my /etc/init.d/nginx

What did I miss? I have no idea what I need to do next.

You're missing listen, like one of these:

listen 127.0.0.1:8000;
listen 127.0.0.1;
listen 8000;
listen *:8000;
listen localhost:8000;

reference: Module ngx_http_core_module

  • Could be (on reflection almost certainly is) the reason, but there are no server blocks in the question - include /etc/nginx/site_enabled/*. – AD7six Feb 25 '15 at 0:18
  • Yes, I made a mistake. The path to the config file was not valid. – user1031963 Feb 25 '15 at 6:18

You should probably check for errors in /var/log/nginx/error.log.

In my case I did no add the port for ipv6. You should also do this (in case you are running nginx on a port other than 80): listen [::]:8000 default_server ipv6only=on;
