[SOLVED] Restart nginx question

A quick question, please?

Does nginx -s reload (as root) accomplish the same thing as sudo systemctl restart nginx.service, please?

Thanks

Re: [SOLVED] Restart nginx question

Almost:

https://salsa.debian.org/nginx-team/ngi … ervice#L24

EDIT: or use

# /etc/init.d/nginx restart

https://salsa.debian.org/nginx-team/ngi … #L132-L156

Re: [SOLVED] Restart nginx question

nginx restart errors

invalid option: "restart"

I'm not sure what to make of the salsa.debian.org pages ... do I need to edit something so that nginx -s reload is the same as nginx restart?

That's not what I posted hmm

EDIT: the first salsa link shows the ExecReload line from the systemd unit file for nginx; that command is what is run when systemctl restart nginx is called.

Better to use the init script instead though, hence my suggestion in the code block.

Re: [SOLVED] Restart nginx question

Alternatively use either 

sudo service nginx restart

or

su - 
service nginx restart

depending on whether you have a root password or not.

That's me missing a detail, again ...

I was sitting at /etc/nginx/ and missed the /init.d/ .. sigh.

All good, thanks!

Onward ...

OK, cool, I'm in root but

sudo service nginx restart

ran fine.

Thanks
