NGINX is controlled by its command-line interface (CLI). In this video, learn the commands to stop and start NGINX, check the status of the service, and test NGINX's configuration after making changes.
- [Instructor] Like many other Linux services,…NGINX is controlled by it's command line interface, or CLI.…Let's take a look at some of the commands…we'll be using as we get more familiar with NGINX.…Keep in mind, that you need to either be…either logged in as a root user…or preface the command with sudo to…enable root privileges as the command is run.…Since I'll be running several commands that…require root privileges, I'll become the…root user by typing sudo, su, dash.…Now, we can check the status of the NGINX…service with systemctl, status, NGINX.…
This gives a brief report letting us know the…service is running, how long it's been running,…and some details on how the process was started.…This command uses a pager by default,…so you have to type Q to end the…status report and get back to the prompt.…One way to get around this is to use the no pager switch.…So I can run the same command with…dash, dash, no, dash, pager.…This gives us the complete output…and then goes right back to the command prompt.…We can also use systemctl to stop and start NGINX,…
