I noticed that the graceful reload was not actually loading the new
config changes and so ive had to use a hard down/start

kill -quit $master works

i did also notice that nginx will not start with the following in the config:
pid  /var/log/nginx/nginx/pid;

so ive had to remove the line from the config...
so it makes sense to why i cant stop it.. the pid is not able to write
to a file
