Nginx service not restarting

Sometimes we will get the following error, while trying to start nginx…

[emerg]: bind() to 0.0.0.0:80 failed (98: Address already in use)

Then it means nginx or some other process is already using port 80. We can resolve this problem by the following steps.

Step1: Kill the process running on port 80

fuser -k 80/tcp

Step2: Restart nginx service

service nginx start
