Re: Error install


The 'sudo service nginx start' command only works if you have installed nginx with the the package manager (apt or yum) so please install that first.

Then make sure the nginx location the start script points to (/etc/init.d/nginx probably) corresponds with the location of the nginx executable you just compiled and installed
