I had NGINX running fine on my local machine and tried to install the Google Page Speed module by first uninstalling nginx and following the re-installing from source as Google suggests.

Now NGINX won't start, and I can't access any of the sites I have set up locally for development. There is nothing in my error logs, yet I can see I have the /etc/nginx/ directory with all the configuration files I had before.

Any idea how I can get things working again?

I tried re-installing but still no joy :(

Got it working I had to replace the /etc/nginx directory with a backup I took of it before I tried anything with ngx-pagespeed. Now it works as before but pity ngx-pagespeed did not work.
