Hi folks. Trying to get this FreeBSD nginx installation set up.
nginx version: nginx/1.12.0
3 vhosts on this box. nginx.conf tests show the following:
[Wed Jul 12 06:08:41 rich at neb /var/log/nginx] nginx -t
nginx: the configuration file /usr/local/etc/nginx/nginx.conf syntax is ok
nginx: [emerg] open() "/var/run/nginx.pid" failed (13: Permission denied)
nginx: configuration file /usr/local/etc/nginx/nginx.conf test failed
Here are those permissions (644):
-rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 4 Jul 11 15:59 nginx.pid
Not sure why nginx is not happy with those restrictions. It has read/write permissions errors on a process ID file. Confusing.
Any ideas how I can troubleshoot this? That nginx.pid permissions issue is halting the whole server.
