Site create fails at nginx reload

I used EasyEngine to create a new website

Prior the create command below I updated EasyEngine to 3.7.0

ee site create --wpfc

Everything was running smoothly until I got the following error.

Reload : nginx     [Failed]
service nginx reload failed. check issues with `nginx -t` command.
Check logs for reason `tail /var/log/ee/ee.log` & Try Again!!!

I followed the suggestion of the console to run the nginx -t command and everything seems fine.

nginx -t
nginx: the configuration file /etc/nginx/nginx.conf syntax is ok
nginx: configuration file /etc/nginx/nginx.conf test is successful

This is the outpout of the tail /var/log/ee/ee.log command.

Could you please help me resolve this issue?

@Onisiforos can you share the output of sudo tail -n 50 /var/log/ee/ee.log ?

p.s: You can use pastebin or similar website to share long results.

Thank you.


Thank you for your reply and your tip.

Here is the link to pastebin.

@Onisiforos Can you please kill all nginx process on your current system, restart the process and then perform the same task. Le us know if the issue persists.

Sorry, for the inconvenience.


After following your instructions the issue has been fixed and I managed to create the site.

Thank you

@Onisiforos glad I that I was able to help.
