Hello There, Today I am going to tell you how to update the nginx to latest stable version without removing it.
Here we go:
Create a backup of existing nginx config file:
sudo cp /etc/nginx/nginx.conf /etc/nginx/nginx.conf.backup
Stop nginx service:
sudo service nginx stop
sudo apt-get install python-software-properties
Add repository for stable version:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nignx/stable
Update aptitude and upgrade it:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get safe-upgrade
it will ask if you want to keep old config changes or get the new config, Please select Yes(Y) to keep config.
Finally Start nginx:
sudo service nginx start
Now you can see that nginx version is upgraded to latest stable version.
