I got this error "Reload : nginx [Failed]"


#1

I normally use serverpilot to host multiple wordpress sites with the 1 click feature but sadly serverpilot doesn’t work on OpenVZ VPS so I decided its a great time to try EasyEngine as I heard many great things about it. Anyways, I was able to install EasyEngine but when I tried to install my wordpress site I got an error

sudo ee site create example.com --wp

I went to see more of the log

Not sure what went wrong. If anyone knows how to fix this error let me know. I would love to setup multiple wordpress sites using EasyEngine on a OpenVZ VPS :slight_smile:

Me too.

Consistently.

This is on a VMware installation of Ubuntu. A brand new install of Ubuntu Server 16.04.02, and after installing easy engine, and attempting to create a new site, I get those same errors:

ee site create siteexample.com Running pre-update checks, please wait… Setting up NGINX configuration [Done] Setting up webroot [Done] Reload : nginx [Failed] Oops Something went wrong !! Calling cleanup actions … Reload : nginx [OK] service nginx reload failed. check issues with nginx -t command. Check logs for reason tail /var/log/ee/ee.log & Try Again!!!

Trying to do a manual

device nginx reload

works fine. No error.

It seems others are having this problem, but there are no real answers.
