The problem is you shouldn't actually say "-s signal". The word
"signal" in the man page is just a placeholder for one of the four
options stop, quit, reopen, reload.
Here are the valid commands:
# Start the server. If it's already started you'll see
# a bunch of "bind" errors. If you want to restart you
# should do a "-s quit" first.
sudo nginx -s stop
# Stop the server quickly. (Sends the SIGTERM signal.)
sudo nginx -s quit
# Stop the server gracefully. (Sends the SIGQUIT signal.)
sudo nginx -s reopen
# Reopen the server's log files but don't do anything else.
sudo nginx -s reload
# Reload the server's configuration file.
# Use this when you make changes to the configuration, but don't
# need to do a hard restart. This will gracefully shut down old
# worker processes that are using the old configuration.
