Nginx Configuration Check
Run either of these commands after making configuration changes to find issues before reloading or restarting the Nginx.
gp ngx -t gp ngx -status
These commands stop and start Nginx. Run them separately.
gp ngx -stop gp ngx -start
The restart command issues a STOP and then START from one command.
gp ngx -restart
Reload reloads the configuration without completely stopping the service. Specifically, RELOAD will do the following:
- Check configuration syntax
- Attempts to apply the configuration changes
- If successful, begins a new Nginx process
- Old processes begin to shut down as they are no longer needed
gp ngx -reload
In addition the vCanopy Nginx reload command will initiate an OCSP stapling response request for all domain configurations with SSL to avoid issues related to Nginx of “lazy loading” responses after the first request.
