I'm running nginx on raspberry pi.

I ran update and upgrade commands and then installed nginx.

1. sudo apt-get update
2. sudo apt-get upgrade
3. sudo apt-get install nginx

Started the server

4. sudo /etc/init.d/nginx start


[ ok ] Starting nginx (via systemctl): nginx.service.

When I enter ip address into the browser nothing appears. What could be the problem here?

  • netstat says what?

Changed the root in /etc/nginx/sites-available/default

from root /var/www/html; to root /usr/share/nginx/www;

I also renamed html folder to www because it was missing.

Restarted nginx for the changes to take effect.

sudo systemctl restart nginx
