Nginx cheatcheat. List of mostly commonly used nginx commands

Nginx is known for its use as a web server and a reverse proxy.
It has several commands that can be useful when deploying new sites.

I have written the most commonly used nginx commands list sucthat i or any other person can easily look them up whenever needed.

1. Install nginx command:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install nginx

2. Check if nginx is running:

systemctl status nginx

3. Check for syntax errors in nginx files:

nginx -t

4. Restart nginx:

sudo systemctl restart nginx

5. Create a symlink from sites-available to sites-enabled

sudo ln -s /etc/nginx/sites-available/**your_domain** /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/

6. Start Nginx :

sudo systemctl stop nginx

7. Stop nginx :

sudo systemctl start nginx
