    Apache is running instead of Nginx!

    When i visited my sites hosted on my vps today. I got the Apache message "It Works!".
    It seems like Apache is running instead of Nginx that i want. I have Minstall installed with virtual hosts.
    Please help how i can fix back to Nginx and my virtual hosts using Minstall!

    • Just stop apache and remove it maybe?

    • netomxnetomx Member, Moderator

      apt-get purge apache && service nginx start

    • It happens if your vps is reinstalled or your ip is assigned to another customer. can you still log in to ssh?

      I got error messages when i run your command:

      Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Virtual packages like 'apache' can't be removed 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 2 not upgraded.

      apache is still running, try
      service apache2 stop

      or

      killall httpd

      apt-get purge apache2 && service nginx restart
    • Not then, just run
      service apache stop
      update-rc.d -f apache remove
      service nginx start

      (maybe apache2, I don't know on debian)

    • @superpilesos

      If you sometimes can't log into ssh and get other sites/services showing on your ip, then you restart your vm and everything is back to normal

      It happen to me once. :D

    • Also, if you're still getting a fail bind error, run this:

      lsof -i :80
